ek tasalsul se raigani hai

ek tasalsul se raigani hai
zindagi bhi ajab kahani hai
sar mein sauda naya samaya hai
dil mein wahshat wahi purani hai
tujh gali mein ghubar ban ke miyan
hijr ki khak hum ne chhani hai
mujh ko tahlil kar diya pal mein
kya ajab marg-e-na-gahani hai
dil mein matam-kunan hai halqa-e-gham
tere jaane ki soz-khwani hai
dasht-e-imkan to ek pal hai magar
pa-e-imkan to jawedani hai
kis qadar hun shikasta-pa phir bhi
khud ko pane ki phir se thani hai
