Hitch-Hiker

main ki do roz ka mehman tire shahr men tha

ab chala huun to koi faisla kar bhi na saka

zindagi ki ye ghadi tutta pul ho jaise

ki thahar bhi na sakun aur guzar bhi na sakun

mehrban hain tiri ankhen magar ai munis-e-jan

in se har zakhm-e-tamanna to nahin bhar sakta

aisi be-nam masafat ho to manzil kaisi

koi basti ho basera hi nahin kar sakta

ek muddat hui laila-e-vatan se bichhde

ab bhi riste hain magar zakhm purane mere

jab se sarsar mire gulshan men chali hai tab se

barg-e-avara ki manind thikane mere

aaj is shahr kal us shahr ka rasta lena

haae kya chiiz gharib-ul-vatani hoti hai

ye safar itna musalsal hai ki thak haar ke bhi

baith jaata huun jahan chhanv ghani hoti hai

tu bhi aisa hi dil-aram shajar hai jis ne

mujh ko is dasht-e-qayamat se bachae rakha

ek ashufta-sar o abla-pa ki khatir

kabhi zulfon kabhi palkon ko bichhae rakha

dukh to har vaqt taaqub men raha karte hain

yuun panahon men kahan tak koi rah sakta hai

kab talak ret ki divar sambhale koi

vo thakan hai ki mera jism bhi Dah sakta hai

ajnabi log nae log parai galiyan

zindagi aaise qarain men kategi kaise

teri chahat bhi muqaddas teri qurbat bhi bahisht

des paradesh ki tafriq ghategi kaise

na-guzir aaj hua jaise bichhadna apna

kal kisi roz mulaqat bhi imkan men hai

main ye pairahan-e-jan kaise badal sakta huun

ki tira haath mere dil ke gareban men hai
