muKHtalif Tariqon Se Ranj Umr Bhar Paya

muḳhtalif tarīqoñ se rañj umr bhar paayā

zindagī to kyā paa.ī ham ne dard-e-sar paayā

dost se tavaqqo thī kuchh karam-numā.ī kī

maiñ tavīl shikve ko muḳhtasar na kar paayā

vāqi.a sahī lekin jurm hai ye kahnā bhī

maiñ ne apne aalam se un ko be-ḳhabar paayā

bul-havas meñ aur mujh meñ farq kuchh batāo to

kis ko dūrbīñ paayā kis ko kam-nazar paayā

is jahān-e-rañgīñ se mutma.in nahīñ koī

maiñ ne ahl-e-duniyā ko āzim-e-safar paayā

dil meñ un kī aamad se nuur kī kiran phūTī

raat ke añdhere ne jalva-e-sahar paayā

kaash abhī hayāt apnī aur kuchh vafā kartī

maiñ tire taġhāful kā shukr adā na kar paayā

ham ne kyā taraqqī kī kasb-e-ilm-o-fan kar ke

bāvajūd-e-koshish bhī ḳhud ko be-hunar paayā

ab to hādse dil ke yaad bhī nahīñ ‘nudrat’

kis maqām par khoyā kis maqām par paayā
