paDe hain rah mein jo log be-sabab kab se


paḌe haiñ raah meñ jo log be-sabab kab se
pukārtī hai unheñ manzil-e-talab kab se

ye aur baat makīnoñ ko kuchh ḳhabar na huī
lagā rahe the muhāfiz magar naqab kab se

koī bhī harba-e-tash.hīr kārgar na huā
tamāshbīñ hī rahī shohrat-e-adab kab se

ukhaḌ ga.ī haiñ tanābeñ sitam ke ḳhemoñ kī
ulaT ga.ī hai bisāt-e-hasab-nasab kab se

na hausla hai duā kā na aah par hai yaqīñ
ki ham se ruuTh gayā hai hamārā rab kab se

samundaroñ se koī mauj-e-sar-buland uThe
ki sāhiloñ pe taḌapte haiñ jāñ-ba-lab kab se

vo ham ne chun diye tanqīd kī salīboñ par
machal rahe the jo kuchh harf zer-e-lab kab se

paDe hain rah mein jo log be-sabab kab se
pukarti hai unhen manzil-e-talab kab se

ye aur baat makinon ko kuchh KHabar na hui
laga rahe the muhafiz magar naqab kab se

koi bhi harba-e-tashhir kargar na hua
tamashbin hi rahi shohrat-e-adab kab se

ukhaD gai hain tanaben sitam ke KHemon ki
ulaT gai hai bisat-e-hasab-nasab kab se

na hausla hai dua ka na aah par hai yaqin
ki hum se ruTh gaya hai hamara rab kab se

samundaron se koi mauj-e-sar-buland uThe
ki sahilon pe taDapte hain jaan-ba-lab kab se

wo hum ne chun diye tanqid ki salibon par
machal rahe the jo kuchh harf zer-e-lab kab se
