My Funeral “Poem”
Never a funeral for me nor any Shrine
How amazing it would be O Ghalib if no one attend my Janaza?
Once I take my my life away all my difficulties will be at ease
I don’t even deserve to have a funeral like maccandless
Let my body be eaten by wild animals
I need no prayers or a place to be buried
I am not the son of Mary then why do I suffer so much?
Take my funeral O winds
Why not someone come and please cure my sorrows?
My death shall be a mystery for World
Let no one organize any funeral for I am dead
I will die for nothing
My soul O my soul fly
Leave my body in wilderness alone
Let animals eat my flesh and fill their bellies
Let no funerals be arranged when I die O Ghalib
I must rebel against life that was given to me
No one shall cry at my death
No one shall know that I am dead
When my sorrows reaches Himalayas
I seek death with courage
Consider me dead o world offer no funeral for me for godsake
I lived all my life alienated O world
I don’t need your sympathy when I die
Welcome O worms all my flesh is yours
My heart is not made of stone why shouldn’t I shed tears?
I’m deeply disappointed of being born
All that is Life but pain and sorrows O heart
I will shed tears millions times why would anyone stop me?
Let no funeral for me but period
Let me die alone O world
Let me die like an insect O God
