akhtar-hoshiyarpuri

Khwahishen Itni Badhin Insan Aadha Rah Gaya

ḳhvahishen itni baḌhin insan aadha rah gaya

ḳhvab jo dekha nahin vo bhi adhura rah gaya

main to us ke saath hi ghar se nikal kar aa gaya

aur pichhe ek dastak ek saaya rah gaya

us ko to pairahanon se koi dilchaspi na thi

dukh to ye hai rafta rafta main bhi nanga rah gaya

rang tasviron ka utra to kahin Thahra nahin

ab ke vo barish hui har naqsh phika rah gaya

umr bhar manzar-nigari ḳhuun men utri rahi

phir bhi ankhon ke muqabil ek dariya rah gaya

raunaqen jitni thiin dahlizon se bahar aa gaiin

shaam hi se ghar ka darvaza khula kya rah gaya

ab ke shahr-e-zindagi men saneha aisa hua

main sada deta use vo mujh ko takta rah gaya

titliyon ke par kitabon men kahin gum ho gae

muTThiyon ke aine men ek chehra rah gaya

rail ki gaaḌi chali to ik musafir ne kaha

dekhna vo koi station pe baiTha rah gaya

main na kahta tha ki ujlat is qadar achchhi nahin

ek paT khiḌki ka aa kar dekh lo va rah gaya

log apni kirchiyan chun chun ke aage baḌh gae

main magar saman ikaTTha karta tanha rah gaya

aaj tak mauj-e-hava to lauT kar aai nahin

kya kisi ujḌe nagar men diip jalta rah gaya

ungliyon ke naqsh gul-danon pe aate hain nazar

aao dekhen apne andar aur kya kya rah gaya

dhuup ki garmi se inTen pak gaiin phal pak gae

ik hamara jism tha ‘aḳhtar’ jo kachcha rah gaya
