I Know Not Who Am I

bullah, i know not who i am
bullah, i know not who i am

nor am i believer in mosque
nor am i in the rituals of the infidel
nor am i the pure in the impure
nor am i inherent in the vedas
nor am i present in the intoxicants
nor am i lost nor the corrupt

nor am i union nor grief
nor am i intrinsic in the pure/impure
nor am i of the water, nor of the land
nor am i fire, nor air

bullah, i know not who i am
bullah, i know not who i am

nor am i arabic
nor from lahore
nor am i the indian, city of nagaur
nor a hindu, nor a peshawri turk
nor did i create the differences of faith
nor did i create adam-eve
nor did i name myself
beginning or end, i know just the self
do not acknowledge duality
there’s none wiser than I
there’s none wiser than I
who is this bulla shah

bullah, i know not who i am
bullah, i know not who i am

i am not moses or the pharaoh
i am not sleep or wakefulness
i am not fire or the wind
i do not stay in nadaun
i am not inertia or travel
who is this bulla shah
