naqab jitne hain

safar mein pesh koi hadisa bhi mumkin hai
zara se der mein aah-o-buka bhi mumkin hai
mera wajud kabhi be aman na ho jae
ye jism mar ke kahin be-nishan na ho jae
mera pata na chale kuchh meri khabar na mile
guzar hua tha jahan se wo rahguzar na mile
shikar ho gaya jab marg-e-na-gahani ka
khayal aaega logon ko tab nishani ka
naqab jitne hain mere wo noch dalenge
parat utarenge chehra kharonch dalenge
yahi sabab hai ki jab bhi main ghar se jata hun
kuchh ehtimam isi dar se kar ke jata hun
na koi naqsh na tahrir apni rakhta hun
main apni jeb mein taswir apni rakhta hun
