hawa-o-hirs ki duniya mein dar-ba-dar hue hum

hawa-o-hirs ki duniya mein dar-ba-dar hue hum
khabar jahan ki rakhi khud se be-khabar hue hum

qafas mein the to par-o-baal the sharik-e-malal
chaman mein aae to mahrum-e-baal-o-par hue hum

kanara-gir tamashaiyon se kaisa gila
har ek mauja-e-tufan ke ham-safar hue hum

hamare hausle ki dad to adu ne bhi di
chale hain nawak-e-dushnam to sipar hue hum

wo jis safar mein murad-e-safar yaqini thi
usi safar pe na aamada-e-safar hue hum

hamari manzilat-o-qadr apne fan se hai
hunar-shanas hue hum to mo'atabar hue hum

hamare pas hai 'mohsin' mata-e-hairani
wo intizar raha hai ki chashm-e-dar hue hum
