nai tahzib se bachchon ko bachaun kaise


na.ī tahzīb se bachchoñ ko bachā.ūñ kaise
ḳhud to bigḌā huuñ zamāne ko banā.ūñ kaise

vo na dekhe merī jānib to nahīñ us kī ḳhatā
maiñ añdhere meñ paḌā huuñ nazar aa.uuñ kaise

mere āñgan meñ to aa.ī hī nahīñ mauj-e-bahār
koī phūloñ se bharā giit sunā.ūñ kaise

chāhtā to huuñ ki dekhūñ pas-e-parda kyā hai
dastaras jis pe na ho us ko uThā.ūñ kaise

par nikalte hī koī us ko katar detā hai
apne bachchoñ ko fazāoñ meñ uḌā.ūñ kaise

vaqt mahdūd diyā kaam diyā lā-mahdūd
zindagī bol tirā qarz chukā.ūñ kaise

jism par choT lagī ho to dikhā.ūñ 'māhir'
dil pe jo choT lagī hai vo dikhā.ūñ kaise

nai tahzib se bachchon ko bachaun kaise
KHud to bigDa hun zamane ko banaun kaise

wo na dekhe meri jaanib to nahin us ki KHata
main andhere mein paDa hun nazar aaun kaise

mere aangan mein to aai hi nahin mauj-e-bahaar
koi phulon se bhara git sunaun kaise

chahta to hun ki dekhun pas-e-parda kya hai
dastaras jis pe na ho us ko uThaun kaise

par nikalte hi koi us ko katar deta hai
apne bachchon ko fazaon mein uDaun kaise

waqt mahdud diya kaam diya la-mahdud
zindagi bol tera qarz chukaun kaise

jism par choT lagi ho to dikhaun 'mahir'
dil pe jo choT lagi hai wo dikhaun kaise
