Urdu

زندگی ہم سے ترے ناز اٹھائے نہ گئے
سانس لینے کی فقط رسم ادا کرتے تھے

Devanagri

ज़िंदगी हमसे तिरे नाज़ उठाए ना गए
सांस लेने की फ़क़त रस्म अदा करते थे

Roman

Zindagi Hum Se Tere Naaz Uthaye Na Gaye

Saans Lene Ki Faqat Rasm Adaa Karte Thhey

My Attempt at English Translation

Life, I cannot deal with your tantrums
Breathing was only a ritual that I offered

Why I like it

Life is a constant battle. Living life is an art. When there is a feeling of losing against life, this couplet comes to my mind. Strangely, it gives me strength to keep going.
