Poetry Lost Avenue (in Punjabi)

ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਮਸਲਾ ਦੱਸਕੇ ਉਸਦਾ ਹੱਲ ਵੀ ਦੱਸਦੀ ਹੈ
ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਸਵਾਲ ਦੱਸਕੇ ਜੁਵਾਬ ਵੀ ਦੱਸਦੀ ਹੈ
ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਕੁਕਰਮ ਦੱਸਕੇ ਸੁਕਰਮ ਕਰਨ ਨੂੰ ਦੱਸਦੀ ਹੈ
ਮੰਨ ਲਵੋ ਕੋਈ ਮਨੁੱਖ ਕਿਸੇ ਗਲਤ ਜਗ੍ਹਾ ਤੇ ਗੁਆਚਿਆ ਹੋਇਆ ਹੈ
ਹੁਣ ਓਸ ਓਪਰੀ ਥਾਂ ਦੀਆਂ ਗਲੀਆਂ ਗੁਆਚੇ ਹੋਏ ਮਨੁੱਖ ਦੇ ਘਰ ਦੀਆਂ ਗਲੀਆਂ ਨਹੀਂ ਹਨ
ਓਸ ਓਪਰੀ ਥਾਂ ਦੀਆਂ ਗਲੀਆਂ ਵਿੱਚੋਂ ਨਿਕਲਣ ਲਈ
ਉਸ ਨੇ ਫੋਨ ਕਰਕੇ ਕਿਸੇ ਜਾਣਕਾਰ ਤੋਂ ਰਾਹ ਪੁਛਿਆ ਹੋਵੇ
ਜਾਣਕਾਰ ਨੇ ਗਲਤ ਜਗ੍ਹਾ ਦੀ ਸਹੀ ਜਾਣਕਾਰੀ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਕਹਿਣਾ ਹੈ
ਇਥੋਂ ਨਿਕਲਣ ਲਈ Lost avenue ਜਾ ਕੇ Needless road ਤੋਂ
Home street ਤੇ RIGHT ਮੁੜ ਜਾਵੀਂ
ਇਸ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਗੁਆਚਿਆ ਮਨੁੱਖ ਅਪਨੇ ਨਿਜ ਘਰ ਆ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ ।

Thank YOU Spndamin Ji...
Heres the Translation...

Gurbani states the "problem" and offers the Solution... Gurbani poses the "question" and gives the Answers....Gurbani informs us about Bad deeds and persuades us to to do Good deeds....Lets say a person is lost...the place has new and strange street names, names of places etc..he is not all familiar with those as he is with his HOME TOWN...and he asks a friend for directions on the phone...this friend then finds the place his friend is LOST in..and gives him the RIGHT directions to go HOME..He says..To get out of that place..GO TO Lost Avenue...then ON to NEEDLESS Road...then to HOMESTREET and turn RIGHT..you are HOME !! This is how SGGS is...Directing us lost souls the way HOME..NIJ GHAR..
