Ek Aur Shahr

khud-fahmi ka arman hai tariki men ru-posh

tariki khud be-chashm-o-gosh!

ik be-payan ujlat rahon ki alvand!

sinon men dil yuun jaise chashm-e-az-e-sayyad

taaza khuun ke pyase afrangi mardan-e-rad

khud deve-e-ahan ke manind

dariya ke do sahil hain aur donon hi napaid

shar hai dast-e-siyah aur khair ka hamil ru-e-safed

ik bar-e-mizhgan ik lab-e-khand

sab paimane be-sarfa jab sim-o-zar mizan

jab zauq-e-amal ka sar-chashma be-maani hizyan

jab dahshat har lamha jan-kand

ye sab ufuqi insan hain ye un ke samavi shahr

kya phir un ki kamin men vaqt ke tufan ki ik lahr?

kya sab virani ke dil-band
