I smiled and they said "can't you be modest"
I cried and they said "why don't you smile?"
I smiled and they said "he's a show off"
I frowned and they said "I started showing my true colors"
I was silent and they said I had a feeble tongue
When I spoke they said I was too talkative
When I was tolerant they called it cowardice
And said, had I been brave, I would have taken a revenge
When I showed up some courage they said it was rash & reckless
And i wouldn't have behaved so if i were balanced.
When I said NO they considered me odd,
When I agreed with them, they called me a blind follower
So it became certain, that no matter how hard I try,
Pleasing People will bring nothing but criticism.


(From poetry of Imaam Ash Shafiee)

Bahadur shah zafar, the last mughal king, wrote these lines before dying(while he was in exile).. It shows the regret with which he had to pay for his lavish lifestyle n his lack of courage when he was called to defend his land... May Allah s.w.t protect us from such behavior n make us productive.. Aameen

Lagta Nahin Hai Dil Mera Ujde Dayaar Mein
Kiski Bani Hai Aalam-E-Napaydaar Mein

Keh Do In Hasraton Se Kahin Aur Ja Basein
Itni Jageh Kahan Hai Dil-E-Daagdar Mein

Umr-E-Daraaz Mang Kar Laye The Chaar Din
Do Aarzoo Mein Kat Gaye Do Intezaar Mein

Kitna Hai Badnaseeb Zafar! Dafan Ke Liye
Do Gaz Zameen Bhi Na Mili Kooye-E-Yaar Mein

:(
