zehra-nigaah

Zehra Ne Bahut Din Se Kuchh Bhi Nahin Likkha Hai

‘zahra’ ne bahut din se kuchh bhi nahin likkha hai

halanki dar-in-asna kya kuchh nahin dekha hai

par likkhe to kya likkhe? aur soche to kya soche?

kuchh fikr bhi mubham hai kuchh haath larazta hai

‘zahra’ ne bahut din se kuchh bhi nahin likkha hai!

divani nahin itni jo munh men ho bak jaae

chup-shah ka roza bhi yunhi nahin rakkha hai

budhi bhi nahin itni is tarah vo thak jaae

ab jaan ke us ne ye andaz banaya hai

har chiiz bhulave ke sanduq men rakh di hai

asani se jiine ka achchha ye tariqa hai

‘zahra’ ne bahut din se kuchh bhi nahin likkha hai!

ghar baar, samajhti thii, qila hai hifazat ka

dekha ki grihasti bhi mitti ka khilauna hai

mitti ho ki patthar ho hiira ho ki moti ho

ghar-bar ke malik ka ghar-bar pe qabza hai

ehsas-e-hukumat ke izhar ka kya kahna!

inaam hai mazhab ka jo haath men koda hai

‘zehra’ ne bahut din se kuchh bhi nahin likkha hai!

divar pe tanga tha farman rifaqat ka

kya vaqt ke dariya ne divar ko Dhaya hai

farman-e-rifaqat ki taqdis bas itni hai

ik jumbish-e-lab par hai, rishta jo azal ka hai

‘zahra’ ne bahut din se kuchh bhi nahin likkha hai!

do beton ko kya paala nadan ye samajhti thi

is daulat-e-duniya ki malik vahi tanha hai

par vaqt ne aina kuchh aisa dikhaya hai

tasvir ka ye pahlu ab samne aaya hai

badhte hue bachchon par khulti hui duniya hai

khulti hui duniya ka har baab tamasha hai

maan baap ki surat to dekha hua naqsha hai

dekhe hue naqshe ka har rang purana hai

‘zehra’ ne bahut din se kuchh bhi nahin likkha hai!

socha tha bahan bhaai dariya hain mohabbat ke

dekha ki kabhi dariya rasta bhi badalta hai

bhaai bhi giraftar-e-majburi-e-khidmat hain

bahnon pe bhi taari hai qismat ka jo likkha hai

ik maan hai jo pedon se baten kiye jaati hai

kahne ko hain das bachche aur phir bhi vo tanha hai

‘zehra’ ne bahut din se kuchh bhi nahin likkha hai
