Ek patthar

ek patthar usne mari jisne kal rat mere sath gujari thi

ek patthar usne bhi mari jo meri hi kaum ka tha par duniya ke samne ane se darta tha

ek patthar usne bhi mari jiske sath sone ke liye maine mana kiya tha

ek patthar masjid ke mullah ne bhi mari kyunki use laga mai islam ko ganda kar raha hun

ek patthar girjaghar ke padri ne mari jiski apni koi ling hi na thi

ek patthar mandir ke pujari ne mari jo apni zindagi bheekh ke anaj se chalata tha

uske bad bas hosh na raha

…………………………

These lines have been taken from a documentary aired on NDTV 24×7 on Nar Narman, first pakistani gay poet, who is now settled in USA. Through these lines he depicts the difficulties of being gay in an all straight world.

(The original lines were in urdu. i have tried to bring the actual meaning of the lines in a more layman language)
