dum

By

janab dum ki ajab nafsiyat hoti hai
ki is ki jumbish-e-adna mein baat hoti hai
wafa ke jazbe ka izhaar dum hilana hai
jo dum khadi hai wo nafrat ka taziyana hai
jo lambi dum hai wo aali-sifat hoti hai
jo mukhtasar hai badi wahiyat hoti hai
wo jaan-dar mukammal nahin adhura hai
wo jis ke dum nahin hoti hai wo landura hai
jahan mein yun to hai uncha maqam insan ka
magar landuron mein aata hai nam insan ka
main sochta hun jo insan ke dum lagi hoti
kasar jo baqi hai wo bhi na rah gai hoti
wo apni jaan bachane ko ye sipar leta
jo hath se nahin kar pata dum se kar leta
kuchh is tariqe se radd-e-amal hua karta
guzarti dil pe to dum par asar mila karta
khushi ka jazba ubharta to dum uchak jati
koi udas jo hota to dum latak jati
kisi pe dhons jamata to dum utha leta
kisi se dhons jo khata to dum daba leta
buzurg log jawanon se jab khafa hote
zaban pe un ke ye alfaz barmala hote
tumhein khabar nahin thi kaisi aan-ban ki dum
kata ke bech li tum ne to khandan ki dum
kahin jo fateh-e-azam koi khada hota
mere khayal mein yun pose de raha hota
bade ghurur se lahra raha hai dum apni
bajae monchhon ke sahla raha hai dum apni
sabha mein jab koi dastur-e-nau bana karta
shumar-e-rae kuchh is tarah se hua karta
jo log us ke muafiq hain dum utha len wo
jo log us ke mukhalif hain dum gira den wo
amir logon ki dum mein anguthiyan hotin
anguthiyon mein naginon ki butiyan hotin
ghamand aur bhi badh jata aur itraate
ye log jeb-ghadi apni dum mein latkate
hasin log kisi tarah se nibha lete
na milta kuchh to faqat dum ko hi ranga lete
jo muflisi se kabhi koi apni jhhallata
to haspatal mein le ja ke dum kata aata
hasin logon ki phulon se dum dhaki hoti
ki phuljhadi si fazaon mein chhut rahi hoti
dumon se phir qad-e-zeba kuchh aur saj jate
kahan ki zulf ki dum hi mein dil ulajh jate
ye iftikhar jo hum aashiqon ko mil jata
har ek ghuncha-e-ummid dil ka khil jata
kisi ko bazm mein hum apna yun pata dete
bajae panw dabane ke dum daba dete
kabhi kamand ka jo kaam dum se ho jata
hum aashiqon ka bada nam dum se ho jata
ishaara kar ke hamein dum wo apni latkate
hum un ke kothe pe dum ko pakad ke chadh jate
hamari rah ka har kanta phul ho jae
agar dua ye hamari qubul ho jae
ki aadmi ke liye dum bahut zaruri hai
baghair dum ke har ek aarzu landuri hai
