Jaana to Bahut Dur Hai Mahtab Se Aage

jaanā to bahut duur hai mahtāb se aage

baḌhte hī nahīñ paañv tire ḳhvāb se aage

kuchh aur hasīñ moḌ the rūdād-e-safar meñ

likkhā na magar kuchh bhī tire baab se aage

tahzīb kī zanjīr se uljhā rahā maiñ bhī

tū bhī na baḌhā jism ke ādāb se aage

motī ke ḳhazāne bhī tah-e-āb chhupe the

niklā na koī ḳhatra-e-girdāb se aage

dekho to kabhī dasht bhī ābād hai kaisā

niklo to zarā ḳhitta-e-shādāb se aage

bichhḌā to nahīñ koī tumhārā bhī safar meñ

kyuuñ bhāge chale jaate ho betāb se aage

duniyā kā chalan dekh ke lagtā to yahī hai

ab kuchh bhī nahīñ ālam-e-asbāb se aage
