Road Poetry II

Here’s another one. When translated into English it would mean something like this, “Be patient, for there is no companion in the grave”. It sort of tells the vehicles following this truck to drive carefully for the grave is a lonely place. Only that when read in Urdu it rhymes and sounds witty.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Road Poetry I

My friend Raza sent me this pic quite a while back. It amply shows the emotions this truck driver has. The couplet when translated comes to something like this, “life with thy lover, death with faith”. The guy wants to have the best of both worlds. He wants his beloved in this life and God’s will in the next. ๐Ÿ™‚
