kash

mujh mein ai yar mere koi kamalat na dekh
khwab wo hun jo kabhi bhi na haqiqat mein dhala
koi sahil nahin manzil na koi moajiza hun
ahl-e-bazar ka chaha hua saman bhi kahan
jo labon par ho zamane ke na wo naghma hun
mere kahne se na rut koi suhani aae
meri chahat se na kaliyon pe jawani chhae
mere jazbon mein kashish suljhe khayalat na dekh
mujh mein ai yar mere koi kamalat na dekh
main to is dahr ka chhota sa bashar hun jis ne
jina marna bhi faqat mulk ki khatir chaha
zulmat-e-shab ke thapedon se ulajhne ke liye
zulm o aazar ke haiwanon se ladna chaha
mere hathon ne kai bar uthae patthar
mujh mein parwaz-e-baghawat ne panapna chaha
mere jazbaat-o-tasawwur mein badi shiddat thi
aag par chalne ki qadmon ko badi chahat thi
ladne walon mein kabhi ek mera nam bhi tha
apne hathon se kabhi ek mera nam bhi tha
khushnuma rang fazaon mein bikherunga kabhi
kuchh ujalon ke shajar main bhi ugaunga kabhi
chhoti hi shama sahi main bhi jalaunga kabhi
par kahan ho saka jo dil ne mere chaha tha
main ne rasta wo chuna ras na jo aaya tha
khud-gharaz shakhs ke har ek irade ki tarah
meri chahat ke qadam jaane kahan ja pahunche
jin mein hire si chamak lagta tha aa jaegi
mujh mein wo sang the jo mujh se tarashe na gae
apne sagar se guhar mujh se nikale na gae
mujh se rahon mein qadam soch ke dale na gae
ab ye aalam hai ki jine ke liye jita hun
ek afsos o kasak dil mein liye phirta hun
apne sine mein kai bojh liye barson se
rahguzar mein thaka be-sud safar karta hun
main hun sagar mein phansi tanha si kashti ki tarah
jis ki qismat mein siwa bahne ke ab kuchh bhi nahin
main wo gul hun jo mahakta to hai aangan mein mere
jis ki khushbu ne zamane ko diya kuchh bhi nahin
mujh mein ek haare sikandar ke siwa kuchh bhi na dekh
meri sirat mein farozan si hikayat na dekh
mujh mein ai yar mere koi kamalat na dekh
