The Good Times Have Not Come – Magtymguly Pyragy

The Good Times Have Not Come
I am an ignorant one; I got trapped by fate,
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come,
And now I can’t bear the departure,
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come.
I am nearly forty, and my bowl is full,
Having gone through a lot of pain in vain, I am not happy,
My good intention has turned to be a bad companion for me,
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come.
A severe disaster has come and hit the people,
It opened its mouth and licked with its tongue,
It is like a wild dog biting everyone it encounters,
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come.
A poor man is not respected; he won’t be seen in gatherings.
Though he’s loved by God, he is not granted wealth;
Even if he rides a horse, he won’t walk with his legs bound,
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come.
Envious people have only one intention—to collect wealth,
Not eating themselves they are strangling the bounty granted to them,
Their riches will become haram, causing lots of problems,
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come.
The mullahs consider my true words false,
They are ready to support false words instead,
Look, steel has melted under their oath,
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come.
The pirs have revealed their true faces,
Getting in love affairs with the youth, the shameless ones are,
Considered to be Sufis. They say: “This is what Allah says,”
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come.
Magtymguly, he who has got fire on his tongue, will spread its flames around,
He won’t take mercy and will reveal the misdeeds of an evil man,
If he is given wings by God he will fly to India,
I have been waiting long, but the good times have not come.
