Gharib Aadmi Ko That Padshahi Ka

gharib aadmi ko thaat padshahi ka

ye pesh-khema hai zalim tiri tabahi ka

khadang-e-ah ko roke raha huun furqat men

khayal hai mujhe aflak ki tabahi ka

umiid kaise ho mahshar men surkh-rui ki

hamesha kaam kiya ho jo ru-siyahi ka

salam tak nahin lete kalam to kaisa

faqiri men bhi tabakhtur hai badshahi ka

shikast-o-fath ka zimma nahin dil-e-nadan

lade hazar men ye kaam hai sipahi ka

khizab karte hain duniya se jab gae guzre

shugun karte hain piiri men ru-siyahi ka

na asman ki inayat na mehrban vo shokh

na puchho haal gharibon ki be-panahi ka

safed balon pe kis vaste khizab lagaen

gaya zamana javani men ru-siyahi ka

khataen ho gaiin maadum haj se ai ‘parvin’

gavah khud hai khuda meri be-gunahi ka
