wafaa karte karte
umr guzar gayi
par koi wafaadaar na mila,
bewafaa khud ne
khud se jab kaha,
toh humne bhi
auron ki tarah
auron se wafaa karna chhor diya.

I spent a lifetime being honest and fidel, but never found an apt reciprocation from them,
unaware that in doing so, i had slowly ended up losing myself,
but when that realisation unpleasantly dawned, i stopped, and finally chose myself over them.
