Dam-E-Akhir Kisi Ka Shikwa-E-Bedad Karte Hain

dam-e-aḳhir kisi ka shikva-e-bedad karte hain

nahin hain hichkiyan rah rah ke ham fariyad karte hain

riha ho kar ham itni ḳhatir-e-sayyad karte hain

nasheman raat ko din ko qafas abad karte hain

fughan sun kar miri vo naaz se irshad karte hain

kahan tu mar rahi ai maut tujh ko yaad karte hain

budhape men tujhe ham ai javani yaad karte hain

ab apni umr aḳhir is tarah barbad karte hain

ajab andaz se kahti hain dil ki hasraten mujh se

hamen ghar se nikalen ghar vo kyuun barbad karte hain

na ankhon men kabhi aansu na honthon par kabhi naale

na ham qismat ko rote hain na ham fariyad karte hain

gale men kyuun rag-e-jan ban ke ḳhanjar rah gaya tera

kahin bismil se aisi shoḳhiyan jallad karte hain

ye kyuun hai dushmanon ko doston ko justuju us ki

vo mujh par rahm farmate hain ya bedad karte hain

girana hai hamen kuchh bijliyan sayyad ke ghar par

asar-ḳhez ik nai tarz-e-fughan ijad karte hain

dil-e-muztar ki tasviren bhari hain kya muraqqe men

kuchh ustadi bhi is men mani-o-bahzad karte hain

hamare saath hai sayyad bhi yarab musibat men

kaleja munh ko aata hai jo ham fariyad karte hain

likha kis husn se ḳhat men ki ham tujh se kashida hain

kashish harfon ki aisi hai ki ham bhi saad karte hain

uthunga yunhi mahshar men liye main un ke ḳhanjar ko

gale mere lagate hain ye kya jallad karte hain

kahan vo hain kahan ham hain pada hai tafraqa yarab

vo ham ko yaad karte hain ham un ko yaad karte hain

miri surat jo dekhi ham-nashin se hans ke farmaya

yahi kohsar par ab matam-e-farhad karte hain

kabhi thodi si pi li lab nahin us ki bhi kuchh parva

alag goshe men baithe hain ḳhuda ko yaad karte hain

mujhe dekha to bole mere kuche se nikal jaaen

ye dil men chutkiyan lete hain ya fariyad karte hain

buzurgi hai ki marte hain butan-e-shoḳh par ab bhi

‘riyaz’ is umr men kyuun aqibat barbad karte hain
