tishnagi labon par hum aks-e-ab likkhenge

tishnagi labon par hum aks-e-ab likkhenge
jin ka ghar nahin koi ghar ke khwab likkhenge
tum ko kya khabar us ki zindagi pe kya biti
zindagi ke zakhmon par hum kitab likkhenge
jis hawa ne kati hain khamushi ki zanjiren
us hawa ke lahje ko inqalab likkhenge
jhut ki parastish mein umr jin ki guzri hai
tirgi-e-shab ko wo aaftab likkhenge
sher ki sadaqat par hum yaqin rakhte hain
maslahat ke chehron ko ba-naqab likkhenge
suliyon pe jhulega bad-nihad har munsif
munsifi ka jab bhi hum khud nisab likkhenge
gham nahin jo khwabon ki lut gai hain tabiren
hum nazar ke taqon mein aur khwab likkhenge
harz-e-jaan samajhte hain hum watan ki mitti ko
apne ghar ke kharon ko hum gulab likkhenge
is ghazal ke partaw mein be-gharon ki baaten hain
be-gharon ke nam us ka intisab likkhenge
har dalil katenge hum dalil-e-raushan se
'bakhsh' sau sawalon ka ek jawab likkhenge
