The pledge to be faithful to our country is tested many a time in our lives. This sonnet talks about the test and the resolution.
The sextet talks about the test, the constraints and the distractions.
The octet talks about one's resolve to serve his country as it is the ultimate stage of love on Earth.

Imtehaan zindagi ka saamne khada
hai ye chaah man mein ke mai ban sakoon bada
thi ye aarzoo maa ke kaam aa sakooN
Wehshat-e-sanam se mai to umr bhar lada
zulf ho sanam ki yaa ho ashq mulq ka
sochna padega inme kaun hai bada

nazr karte hai tere liye ye zindagi
Khidmat-e-watan hi ab hai meri bandagi
Sajda-e-watan se hi to khush hua Khuda
hai dua ke ishq mera bezubaan ho
Sarfaroshi ham pe ab Tu mehrbaan ho
To jannaton ka aks le ke aayegi subah
hai mere humdum isi me kaif-e-zindagi
Khidmat-e-watan hi to ab had hai ishq qi.

The test of my life stares me in the eye
I Have had the desire to do something big in my life
The desire to serve my motherland has always burned in my heart
I have been struggling to fight worldly distractions all my life
Should I choose worldly pleasures when the price is the tears of my countrymen
Should I even consider this tradeoff

No, not at all ! Instead I present thee with the gift of my life
The service of my country is my religion
Perhaps, God would be pleased too when I bow to thee
I pray that my faith in thee is free from all plaints, and that it should not need any medium of conveyance
Fervor, bestow upon me the inspiration to sacrifice myself for my nation
If this happens, then the mornings would drop as shadows of heaven on earth
The joy of life is in the service of nation my friend
To serve your country is the zenith of love.
