Baja Ki dushman-e-Jaan Shahr-e-Jaan Ke Bahar Hai

baja ki dushman-e-jan shahr-e-jan ke bahar hai

magar main us ko kahun kya jo ghar ke andar hai

tamam naqsh parindon ki tarah utre hain

ki kaghazon pe khile paniyon ka manzar hai

main ek shaḳhs jo kumbon men rah gaya baT kar

main musht-e-ḳhak jo taqsim ho ke be-ghar hai

shajar kaTa to koi ghonsla kahin na raha

magar ik uḌta parinda faza ka zevar hai

vo ḳhauf hai ki makin apne apne kamron men hain

vo haal hai ki bayaban men vus.at-e-dar hai

kahin bhi peḌ nahin phir bhi patthar aae hain

gali men koi nahin phir bhi shor-e-mahshar hai

main is vasi.a jazire men vahid insan huun

ki mere charon taraf dasht ka samundar hai

koi bhi ḳhvab na unchi fasil se utra

magar kiran ke guzarne ko rauzan-e-dar hai

tamam raushaniyan bujh gai hain basti men

magar vo diip ki jis ka havaon men ghar hai

kisi se mujh ko gila kya ki kuchh kahun ‘aḳhtar’

ki meri zaat hi ḳhud raste ka patthar hai
