Problems and challenges of the modern era are the main sources to affect the human mind and soul. A poet is a sensitive person in society, he realizes, analyzes, and judges the issues of their era and these topics became a pivotal part of their poetry. Literature has a deep relation with society. The major expression found in Urdu poems is anger, grief, and distress over the devastation and destruction in Pakistan and all over the world, especially in the Islamic world. There is always a fear of 3rd world war which fills the mind with terror and a sense of insecurity that prevails around the globe. Realities have been vigorously launched in Urdu poetry. The contribution of modern-era’s poets is tremendous in this regard that how they portrayed the present state of mind of modern man in their poems.
