Tafaut

ham kitna roe the jab ik din socha tha ham mar jaenge

aur ham se har nemat ki lazzat ka ehsas juda ho jaega

chhoti chhoti chizen jaise shahd ki makkhi ki bhin bhin

chidiyon ki chuun chuun kavvon ka ek ik tinka chunna

niim ki sab se unchi shakh pe ja kar rakh dena aur ghonsla bunna

sadken kutne vaale engine ki chhuk chhuk bachchon ka dhuul udana

aadhe nange mazduron ko pyaaz se roti khate dekhe jaana

ye sab la-yani bekar mashaghil baithe baithe ek dam chhin jaenge

ham kitna roe the jab pahli baar ye khatra andar jaaga tha

is gardish karne vaali dharti se rishta tutega ham jamid ho jaenge

lekin kab se lab sakit hain dil ki hangama-arai ki

barson se avaz nahin aai aur is marg-e-musalsal par

in kam-maya ankhon se ik qatra aansu bhi to nahin tapka
