aadmi

la-intiha jahan-e-mujassam se bhi siwa
la-muntaha zamanon mein rahte hue ye abad
qarnon se rengti hui taqwim-e-kaenat
aab-o-gil-o-shuur sar-e-do-jahan adam
la-falsafa nihayat-e-fahm-e-payambari
zauq-e-numu ki hath mein rekhaen dam-ba-dam
kya jaaniye ki kitne baras ka hai ye charagh
tahzib-e-sokhta hai ayagh-e-huruf mein
fikr o khirad ki bahr o talatum mein kashtiyan
ubhrin kahin to rizq-e-samundar kahin huin
is ehtimam-e-khwab-e-tahayyur mein main nazhad
tanha khada hun apni numaish ke waste
main bhid ke nawah mein madum aadmi

apna apna dukh batlana hota hai

apna apna dukh batlana hota hai
mitti se taswir mein aana hota hai
meri subh zara kuchh der se hoti hai
mujhe kisi ko khwab sunana hota hai
nae nae manzar ka hissa banta hun
jaise jaise jism purana hota hai
ek chidiya mujh se bhi pahle uthti hai
jaise us ko daftar jaana hota hai
yar kitaben kitni jhuti hoti hain
in mein koi aur zamana hota hai
ghar ke andar itni galiyan padti hain
kabhi-kabhaar hi bahar jaana hota hai

bagh ek din ka hai so raat nahin aane ki

bagh ek din ka hai so raat nahin aane ki
wo pari phir se mere hat nahin aane ki
ab wo ladki nahin aane ki mere college mein
ab ke multan se saughat nahin aane ki
tum chali jao ye patthar nahin pahle jaisa
aankh se ju-e-munajat nahin aane ki
ab jo ye wasl hai is wasl ko be-kar samajh
hum pe rangini-e-haalat nahin aane ki
dekh lo khol ke khidki ki zara der hain hum
dusri bar ye baraat nahin aane ki
ab tere baad faqat aab hi utrega yahan
ab ke barsat mein barsat nahin aane ki

chehre par KHush-haali le kar aata hun

chehre par khush-haali le kar aata hun
tum se milne taxi le kar aata hun
yun karna tum jugnu le kar aa jaana
main ek dost se kashti le kar aata hun
raste mein ek tapu par kuchh thahrenge
main bargar aur pepsi le kar aata hun
tum chaho to wapas ja bhi sakti ho
main gadi ki chabi le kar aata hun
jism ki aag se kab tak kaam chalaenge
jangal se kuchh lakdi le kar aata hun
main jata hun to patthar se bahta hai
jis chashme ka pani le kar aata hun

do umron ki rui dhun kar aaya hun

do umron ki rui dhun kar aaya hun
main pardes se khud ko bun kar aaya hun
dariya se yari bhi kitni mushkil hai
main kashti ke tukde chun kar aaya hun
tum ko kitna shauq hai phone pe baaton ka
aaj bhi boss ki baaten sun kar aaya hun
jaane kaun chura leta tha mera waqt
wall-clock pe jala ban kar aaya hun
aaj ki sham guzarenge hum chhatri mein
barish hogi khabren sun kar aaya hun
dost ko samjhane ki khatir aaya tha
anjaane mein khud ko tun kar aaya hun
