akhtar-hoshiyarpuri

Phir Ye Hua Ki Log darichon Se Hat Gae

phir ye hua ki log darichon se haT gae

lekin vo gard thi ki dar-o-bam aT gae

kuchh log jhankne lage divar-e-shahr se

kuchh log apne ḳhuun ke andar simaT gae

vo peḌ to nahin tha ki apni jagah rahe

ham shaḳh to nahin the magar phir bhi kaT gae

pur-haul jangalon men hava chiḳhti phiri

vapas gharon ko kyuun na musafir palaT gae

itne to raste men bhi saae nahin mile

jitne ki log aae aur aa kar palaT gae

miTTi ke in charaghon ki himmat to dekhiye

jo jaate jaate shab ki safon ko ulaT gae

jab ham se apni zaat ka patthar na uTh saka

‘aḳhtar’ ham aaine ke muqabil hi daT gae
