Masochistic Spirituality

bhaTTi waaliye chambe diye Daaliye
peeDaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de
taennu devaan hanjuaa.n da bhaaDaa
peeDaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de

bhaTTi waaliye chambe diye daaliye
peedaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de

chhetti chhetti karee.n mei.n taa.n jaaNaa baDee door nee
jitthe mere haaniyaa daa Tur geyaa poor nee
Oss pind daa suNee daa raah maaDaa
peeDaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de

bhaTTi waaliye chambe diye Daaliye
peeDaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de
taennu devaa.n hanjuaa.n da bhaaDaa
peedaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de

sau.n gaiyaa.n hawaawaa.n kar kar virlaap nee
taareyaa.n nu chaD geyaa mathaa mathaa taap nee
jaaiyaa.n sahaa.n deedaa russ geyaa laaDaa
peeDaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de

bhaTTi waaliye chambe diye Daaliye
peeDaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de
taennu devaa.n hanjuaa.n da bhaaDaa
peedaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de

nee dukkhaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de
peeDaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de
lae dukkhaa.n daa paraagaa bhunn de


-- Shiv Kumar Batalvi
