Mat Puchh Ki Is Paikar-E-KHush-Rang Mein Kya Hai

mat pūchh ki is paikar-e-ḳhush-rañg meñ kyā hai

ik ret kā Tiila pas-e-dīvār-e-qabā hai

ye ḳhalq ibārat hai lab-e-goyā kī muhtāj

dekheñ to faqat daaġh hai boleñ to sadā hai

aatī hai sisakne kī dil-e-dasht se āvāz

shāyad ki rag-o-pai meñ koī ābla-pā hai

hai bojh tan-e-ḳhasta kā dīvār-e-nafas par

goyā ki mire ghar kā sutūñ mauj-e-havā hai

kuchh vahshat-e-iz.hār lahū shāḳh pe laa.ī

kuchh raas gul-e-zaḳhm ko ye āb-o-havā hai

ab aur koī nutq-o-zabāñ hoñ to kahūñ kuchh

is ḳhāna-e-dar-band meñ kyā hashr bapā hai

ab ijz-e-safar kī bhī malāmat hai mire sar

har raah mire sāmne āġhosh-kushā hai

phir tīrgī-e-shab meñ nazar aa.ī na.ī shakl

ab dekh ki kis ḳhvāb kā dar aañkh pe vā hai

Takrā ke siyāhī se palaT jaatī hai sūrat

‘shāhid’ dil-e-ā.īna meñ dīvār sī kyā hai
