Log Ki Jinko Tha Bahut Zom-E-Wajud Shahr Mein

log ki jin ko thā bahut zom-e-vajūd shahr meñ

phail ke rah ga.e faqat sūrat-e-dūd shahr meñ

ham se jahāñ anek the bad the vahī ki nek the

sach hī to hai ki ek the būd-o-nabūd shahr meñ

tañgī-e-rizq kā gilā jin ko yahāñ sadā rahā!

toḌ ke dekhte zarā apnī hudūd shahr meñ

itne baras ke ba.ad bhī log haiñ ham se ajnabī

jaane huā thā kis ghaḌī apnā varūd shahr meñ

rāh-e-amal pe gher ke ḳhud ko hī laao pher ke

vo to gayā bikher ke rañg-e-jumūd shahr meñ

mujh ko chalo na māntā naam to koī jāntā

maiñ bhī jo yaar chhāntā ḳhāk-e-numūd shahr meñ

mujh se vo kyā bichhaḌ gayā aur bhī maiñ ujaḌ gayā

chhoḌ ke mujh ko baḌh gayā merā vajūd shahr meñ

mujh se zamīn-e-zer-e-pā us ne jo chhīn lī to kyā

ḳham to nahīñ huā mirā ḳhatt-e-umūd shahr meñ
