An urdu poem by the erstwhile poet Sahir Ludhianvi

Khoon apna ho ya paraaya ho
Nasl-e-aadam ka khoon hai aakhir
Jang maghrib mein ho ke mashriq mein
Amn-e-aalam ka khoon hai aakhir

Bam gharon par giren ke sarhad par
Rooh-e-taameer zakhm khaati hai
Khet apne jalein ke auron ke
Zeest faaqon mein tilmilaati hai

Tank aage baden ke peeche haten
Kokh dharti ki baanjh hoti hai
Fat-ha ka jashn ho ke haar ka sog
Zindagi mayyaton pe roti hai

Is liye ai shareef insaano,
Jang talti rahe to behtar hai
Aap aur hum, sabhi ke aangan mein
Shama jalti rahe to behtar hai


Be this blood ours or theirs
Humanity is bloodied
Be this war in East or west
A peaceful earth is bloodied

Whether the bombs fall on homes or borders
The spirit of construction is wounded
Whether it is our fields that burn or theirs
Life is wracked by starvation

It matters not that tanks advance or retreat
The womb of the earth becomes barren
Be it a celebration of victory or loss' lament
The living must mourn the corpses

That is why, o civilized people
It is better that war remains postponed
In your homes, and in ours
It is better that lamps continue to flicker
