jo baat haqiqat ho be-KHauf-o-KHatar kahiye

jo baat haqiqat ho be-khauf-o-khatar kahiye
main is ka nahin qail shabnam ko guhar kahiye

lafzon ki hararat se ajsam pighal jaen
sanjida zara ho kar ashaar agar kahiye

apnon ne pilae hain zahrab ke ghunt akasr
honton pe jo khushki hai talkhi ka asar kahiye

bazar-e-tasannoa ke jalwon ki numaish ko
tute hue shishon ka adna sa khandar kahiye

jazbaat ka khun kar dun ehsas kuchal dalun
zakhmon se lahu tapke sau bar agar kahiye

takhliq-e-ajussa ya 'hafiz' ki ghazal 'rahbar'
jis se ho baqa fan ki mearaj-e-hunar kahiye
