mat puchh harf-e-dard ki tafsir kuchh bhi ho

mat puchh harf-e-dard ki tafsir kuchh bhi ho
wo khwab la-jawab tha tabir kuchh bhi ho
har naqsh ko mita ke guzarti rahi hawa
lauh-e-jahan pe waqt ki tahrir kuchh bhi ho
behtar nahin ki tujh ko mile kaghzi libas
rangon ka imtizaj hai taswir kuchh bhi ho
jab hukm ho gaya hai ki nala-ba-lab rahen
phir wahm kya hai zahr ki tasir kuchh bhi ho
mere liye zamin ka tasawwur hai aasman
paband hun hawaon ka taqdir kuchh bhi ho
maslak yahi tha shahr ki buniyaad rakh chale
is se gharaz nahin hai ki tamir kuchh bhi ho
chhaya hua hai arz-o-sama par mera shuur
'shahid' karenge zehn ki taskhir kuchh bhi ho
