aaj ke mahaul mein insaniyat badnam hai
ye inad-e-bahami ka hi faqat anjam hai
haq-shanasi ka chalan hum mein nahin baqi raha
subh apni pur-alam hai pur-khatar har sham hai
haif barbaadi-e-gulshan apne hi hathon hui
muft mein baad-e-khizan ke sar pe kyun ilzam hai
dhundli dhundli si faza hai mehr aur ikhlas ki
ab rifaqat aashti aur dosti gumnam hai
tapte sahra se to bach kar aa gae the hum magar
ab qadam kaise badhaen pur-khatar har-gam hai
kya girani aur arzani ki hum baaten karen
pani mahnga hai yahan aur khun saste dam hai
bap se bachche ai 'mohsin' munharif hone lage
tarbiyat aur ilm ke fuqdan ka anjam hai
