Namrud Ki Khudai

ye qudsiyon ki zamin

jahan falsafi ne dekha thaa, apne khvab-e-sahar-gahi men

hava-e-taza o kisht-e-shadab o chashma-e-janfaroz ki aarzu ka partav

yahin musafir pahunch ke ab sochne laga hai:

”vo khvab-e-kabus to nahin thaa?

vo khvab-e-kabus to nahin thaa?

ai falsafa-go,

kahan vo ruya-e-asmani?

kahan ye namrud ki khudai!

tu jaal bunta raha hai jin ke shikasta taron se apne mauhum falsafe ke

ham us yaqin se, ham us amal se, ham us mohabbat se,

aaj mayus ho chuke hain,

koi ye kis se kahe ki akhir

gavah kis adl-e-be-baha ke the ahd-e-tatar ke kharabe?

ajam, vo marz-e-tilism-o-rang-o-khayal-o-naghma

arab, vo iqlim-e-shir-o-shahd-o-sharab-o-khurma

faqat navasanj the dar-o-bam ke ziyan ke,

jo un pe guzri thi

us se bad-tar dinon ke ham said-e-na-tavan hain!

koi ye kis se kahe:

dar-o-bam,

aahan o chob o sang o siman ke

husn-e-paivand ka fusun the

bikhar gaya vo fusun to kya gham?

aur aise paivand se umid-e-vafa kise thii!

shikast-e-mina o jam-e-bar-haq,

shikast-e-rang-e-azar-e-mahbub bhi gavara

magar yahan to khanDar dilon ke,

(ye nau-e-insan ki

kahkashan se buland-o-bartar talab ke ujde hue madain-)

shikast-e-ahang-e-harf-o-maani ke nauhagar hain,
