Hans Raha Hoga Shikari Jal Phailate Hue

hañs rahā hogā shikārī jaal phailāte hue

ḳhauf aatā hai mujhe ghar lauT kar jaate hue

māñgte haiñ log paanī kī duā bā-chashm-e-nam

ḳhush hai bādal har taraf tezāb barsāte hue

ḳhāmushī to mas.ale kā hal nahīñ lagtī hai aur

baat bigḌī hai hamesha baat manvāte hue

muḳhtalif hai soch us kī maiñ ne chāhā thā magar

merā bachcha ho baḌā kal mujh ko dohrāte hue

ḳhvāhishoñ ne kar diyā rusvā sar-e-bāzār yuuñ

ab zarūrat ro rahī hai haath phailāte hue

maiñ usī āvāz ke pīchhe chalā huuñ jhuum kar

aage aage chal rahā hai rāsta gaate hue

kaañp uThtā hai dil-e-‘maqsūd’ ġham ke naam par

maiñ to ik ik dard sah letā huuñ muskāte hue
