Ahmad Shah Durrani
This poem describes his love for his country


By blood, we are immersed in love of you.

The youth lose their heads for your sake.

I come to you and my hear finds rest.

Away from you, grief clings to my heart like a snake.

I gorget the throne of Delhi

When I remember the mountain tops of my Pushtun land.

If I must choose between the world and you,

I shall not desitate to claim your barren deserts as my own.
