Daagh

Aina musarrat mai para tha
Apna aap hasrat mai khara tha
Jo daikha aine mai, tau nazr aya-
Ik roop chasm deed sa
Wo laali, wo Ronaq, wo heere wo moti
Phr muskrahat ati gayi
Par jab dekha haqiqat ko–
Wo gandagi, wo bepardagi, wo lahulahaan atmaa
Wo benoori jise zamaana aas kehta hai
Wo tamana jise rooh ki pyaas kehta hai
Wo zeraw, zanjiron kai–
Tau ankhen nam hoti gayin
Phir unhi berang hoti gayin
Pucha ayenai se…
ye tuj pe daagh kaisa hai

Badalti Dunya, Sulagte Chehre

Suraj bhi dhal gaya
Tarik raat akhir tulu hui
Satrangi mele chalte rahey
Andhere ujale dhal gaye
Parwane sab jal gaye
Shamai bhi shal ho gayin
Dunya karwat badal gayi
Nayi zindagi ki chokhat pe,
Akai khari hui
Cheekh k kehne lagi
Aik nayi umid hone ko hai
Naye jahan basne ko hain
Naya asman bikne ko hai
Nayi dolat khatne ko hai
Mehfil lagi hai aj mey khanon main
Sab gham chupaye bethe hain aatish khanon mai
Hans rahey hain bebasi pe apni
Nayi umid bikhrne ko hai
Par mausam sab wohi hain nam
Barish asman mai phansi hai be-gham
Sanatai dil mai chaye hain
Sulagti roshni nahi leti ab dam
Kapre naye pehan k Ronaq
Kahan ko ja rahi hai
Khamosh khari hai, naya kinara bana rahi hai
Andhere k sanate mai, naya tamasha bana rahi hai
