Fareb

(1)

na-gahan shor hua

lo shab-e-tar-e-ghulami ki sahar aa pahunchi

ungliyan jaag uthin

barbat o ta.us ne angdai li

aur mutrib ki hatheli se shuaen phutin

khil gae saaz men naghmon ke mahakte hue phuul

log chillae ki fariyad ke din biit gae

rahzan haar gae

rah-rau jiit gae

qafile duur the manzil se bahut duur magar

khud-farebi ki ghani chhanv men dam lene lage

chun liya raah ke rezon ko khazaf-rezon ko

aur samajh baithe ki bas laal-o-javahar hain yahi

rahzan hansne lage chhup ke kamin-gahon men

ham-nashin ye tha farangi ki firasat ka tilism

rahbar-e-qaum ki nakara qayadat ka fareb

ham ne azurdagi-e-shauq ko manzil jaana

apni hi gard-e-sar-e-rah ko mahmil jaana

gardish-e-halqa-e-gardab ko sahil jaana

ab jidhar dekho udhar maut hi manDlati hai

dar-o-divar se rone ki sada aati hai

khvab zakhmi hain umangon ke kaleje chhalni

mere daman men hain zakhmon ke dahakte hue phuul

khuun men luthde hue phuul

main jinhen kucha-o-bazar se chun laaya huun

qaum ke rahbaro rahzanon

apne aivan-e-hukumat men saja lo in ko

apne guldan-e-siyasat men laga lo in ko

apni sad-sala tamannaon ka hasil hai yahi

mauj-e-payab ka sahil hai yahi

tum ne firdaus ke badle men jahannam le kar

kah diya ham se gulistan men bahar aai hai

chand sikkon ke evaz chand milon ki khatir

tum ne namus-e-shahidan-e-vatan bech diya

baghban ban ke uthe aur chaman biich diya

kaun azad huaa?

kis ke mathe se siyahi chhuti

mere siine men abhi dard hai mahkumi ka

mother-e-hind ke chehre pe udasi hai vahi

khanjar azad hain sinon men utarne ke liye

maut azad hai lashon pe guzarne ke liye

chor-bazaron men bad-shakl chudailon ki tarah

qimaten kaali dukanon pe khadi rahti hain

har kharidar ki jebon ko katarne ke liye

kar-khanon pe laga rahta hai

saans leti hui lashon ka hujum

biich men un ke phira karti hai bekari bhi

apna khunkhar dahan khole hue

aur sone ke chamakte sikke

Dank uthae hue phan phailae

ruuh aur dil pe chala karte hain

mulk aur qaum ko din raat Dasa karte hain

rotiyan chaklon ki qahbaen hain

jin ko sarmaya ke dallalon ne

nafa-khori ke jharokon men saja rakha hai

baliyan dhaan ki gehun ke sunahre khoshe

misr o yunan ke majbur ghulamon ki tarah

ajnabi des ke bazaron men bik jaate hain

aur bad-bakht kisanon ki bilakti hui ruuh

apne aflas men munh Dhanp ke so jaati hai

ham kahan jaaen kahen kis se ki nadar hain ham

kis ko samjhaen ghulami ke gunahgar hain ham

tauq khud ham ne pahna rakkha hai armanon ko

apne siine men jakad rakkha tufanon ko

ab bhi zindan-e-ghulami se nikal sakte hain

apni taqdir ko ham aap badal sakte hain

aaj phir hoti hain zakhmon se zabanen paida

tira-o-tar fazaon se barsata hai lahu

raah ki gard ke niche se ubharte hain qadam

taare akash pe kamzor hababon ki tarah

shab ke sailab-e-siyahi men bahe jaate hain

phutne vaali hai mazdur ke mathe se kiran

surkh parcham ufuq-e-subh pe lahrate hain
