Apahij Gadi Ka Aadmi

kuchh aaise hain jo zindagi ko mah-o-sal se napte hain

gosht se saag se daal se napte hain

khat-o-khal se gesuon ki mahak chaal se napte hain

saubat se janjal se napte hain

ya apne aamal se napte hain

magar ham ise azm-e-pamal se napte hain

ye lamha jo guzra mire khuun ki us men surkhi mili hai?

mire ansuon ka namak is ki lazzat men shamil hua hai?

pasine se girdab-e-sahil hua hai?

ye la ka safar la rahega ki kuchh is ka hasil hua hai

ki jaise thi barson se vaisi hi tishna-dili hai?

men kab se zamin par zamin ki tarah chal raha huun

ye divana andha safar kab kahan ja ke chhodega mujh ko?

main is zindagi ki bahut si baharen ghiza ki tarah kha chuka huun

pahan odh kar pairahan ki tarah phaad di hain

men resham ka kiida huun koe men chhap jaata huun Dar ke maare

isi koe ko khata rahta huun aur kaat kar is se aata huun bahar

aur apne jiine ka maqsad sabab janna chahta huun

mira dil khuda ki raza DhunDhta phir raha hai

mira jism lazzat ki justuju men laga hai

guzargah-e-sham-o-sahar par kahin ek din main uga tha

nabatat ki tarah jiita huun is kargah-e-jahan men

na ehsas iman iqan koi

na duniya men shamil na khud apni pahchan koi

gunah aur jahannam savab aur jannat?

ye kyuun hai ki be-muzad kuchh bhi nahin mil saka hai

na kal mil sakega

asatir farman-ravaon ke ahkam aur sufiya ki karamat ke qisse

payambar ki dil-soziyon ke mazahir

qalam-band hain sab!

unhen ham ne taaviz ki tarah apne galon men hamail kiya hai

inhen ham ne tah-khanon ki kothari men muqaffal kiya hai

jahan ladkhadate hain in ki madad le ke chalte hain aage

magar raston ka taayyun nahin hai!

main bikhra hua aadmi huun

miri zehni bimariyon ka sabab ye zamin hai

main us din se Darta huun jab barf saari pighal kar

ise gharq kar de

nae asmani havadis

sifar men badal den

ya aadmi apne aamal se khud

ise ik kahani bana de

zamin shora pushton ki amaj-gah ban gai hai

khuda ek hai yuun to vavian men saaf likkha hua hai

magar zer-e-vavain bhi chhoti chhoti bahut takhtiyan hain

jali harf jin ke bahut ummaton ka pata de rahe hain

jo ye takhtiyan apni gardan men latkae

zunnar pahne hue koi tasbih thame

apni gard-e-safar ke dhund men lipte chale ja rahe hain

zaitun ki shakh tulsi ke patte

hava men ude ja rahe hain

chiyuntiyon ki qataren qaran-dar-qaran

mukhtalif pech-dar-pech rahon se guzri chali ja rahi hain

saikadon sar kate dhad bahut raston par pade hain

havan ho rahe hain

yag ke mantron ki sada

aag men jalne vaali samagri ki bahut tez bu

har taraf phail kar bas gai hai hava men

aur vavain ki qaid men jo khuda hai

la-makan se

jo hota hai hota rahega

baitha chup-chap sab dekhta hai

ham bhi kyuun na khuda ki tarah yunhi chup saadh len

ped paudon ki manind jiite rahen

zabh hote rahen!

vo duaen jo barud ki bu men bas kar

bhatakti hui zer-e-arsh-e-barin phir rahi hain

unhen bhuul jaaen

zindagi ko khuda ki ata jaan kar zehn mauf kar len

yava-goi men ya zehni hizyan men khud ko masruf kar len

un men mil jaaen jo zindagi ko

gosht se saag se daal se napte hain

mah-o-sal se napte hain

apna hi khuun piine lage hain

chak-damaniyan gham se siine lage hain
