har-qadam par shauq-e-manzil ki farawani to hai

har-qadam par shauq-e-manzil ki farawani to hai
rah-e-dushwar-e-mohabbat mein ye aasani to hai
be-shak is jine se mar jaane mein aasani to hai
lekin ai dil marzi-e-qatil ki qurbani to hai
sach hai shewan se mere un ko pareshani to hai
lekin aakhir dard-e-uzr-e-nala-e-samani to hai
kaamyabi ho na ho baitha na rah tadbir kar
muddaa bas mein nahin hai sai-e-imkani to hai
aaj ye taskin kafi hai ki kal roz-e-jaza
ruedad-e-zist kah kar dad-e-gham pani to hai
han yahan ye hai ki maqsud-o-tamanna sath hain
warna ye jannat hamari jaani-pahchani to hai
ek zarf-e-dil hai us mein do ki gunjaish kahan
dur ai jamiyat-e-khatir pareshani to hai
han bure ko bhi na iza de ki us ki zat mein
khu-e-insani nahin hai ruh-e-haiwani to hai
rahnumai aql se chahi shuru-e-ishq mein
afw kar ai be-khudi ye meri nadani to hai
dekhiye bazar-e-mahshar mein ye kin damon bike
jins-e-gham ki khair se duniya mein arzani to hai
aur niklegi koi tadbir pairahan-dari
hon jo shal hain hath shauq-e-chaak-damani to hai
aaine mein eqtidar-e-husn ki surat kahan
aaina rakh de idhar aa meri hairani to hai
un ko kya tute kisi ka dil ki ruswa ho koi
khush rahen yusuf ki sabit pak-damani to hai
kis gharaz se phir gawara kijiye taklif-e-zabt
raaz rakh kar bhi mohabbat ki saza pani to hai
ahl-e-dil se ye jahan khali bhi rahta hai kahin
'urfi'-o-'ghaalib' nahin 'fani' nahin 'mani' to hai
