main wo be-chaara hun jis se be-kasi manus hai

main wo be-chaara hun jis se be-kasi manus hai
jo hatheli hath mein hai ek kaf-e-afsos hai
is qadar ranj-e-siyah-bakhti se hun zar-o-nahif
do-qadam chalna bhi jis ko ek kale kos hai
aasman nan-e-jawin bhi de to neamat jaaniye
pao-roti bhi jo hath aae samjhe toss hai
ghair ke khatir dhara jata hun main muft-e-khuda
koi mulzim ho wo but deta mujhi ko dos hai
'shad' aasa hai use bhi bosa-e-lab ki hawas
bul-hawas bhi ai shakar-lab ek hi lahlus hai
