Raqeeb

Qismat Kai raqeeb
Sab bas gaye ik shehar mai
Jahan chandi mela hota tha
Aur andherei ka pehra hota tha
Par hawain khub chalti thien
Jaise paigham lati houn
Dusre paar se kisi thehrao ka
Dhalta Suraj bas dhalta rehta
Aur chand ko zang lag gaya tha
Par sitare khud roshan thai
Jaise shamyane khud roshan houn
Sham hoti ya raat hoti
Wo qismat Kai raqeeb
Mehfil se bach kar, konon Mai ja chupte thai
Hum jante thai sab raste
Sab deewaron se mulaqat thi
Sab andhero ka pata tha
Ik raqeeb tha uska, dusra mera chehra

Chaon

Na cher parwane ko, na saaz hai kuch
Badlon ne btaya, mee aj khaak se milan sar hai kuch
Hum he hain bas yunhi basera karte hain
Na andar k hain na bahir k
Badu hain kisi ameer khanai k
Zulm k agai kafir hain, aur
Zalim k agai momin hain
Par sach pucho tau Ronaq k andhere main
Yunhi tanha hain, jaise aatish hai pathar k agai
Lachar kuch

Raqs

Raqs krte hain ik shor pe
Maujain khamosh kese hai?
Raqs kyun ni krtin?
Mor ki trha
Laaj rakhta nahi behangam asmaan
Sath deta nahi parwane ka raqs krta hai jo shama k gird
Pair thakte nahi kyun mor k
Harta kyun nhi parwana?
Nach nach k sab aag k gird
Chalni hue gham
Sapera rokta kyun nahi,
Raag apne ko, nashe mai hai naag aj
Sapne dekhta hai–
Sikhaya ghoray ko dhol ki thaap pe
Apna aap khona
Tau kainaat jhumti kyun nhi?
Pagal pan mai
Dewangi hti kia hai
Mor raqs krta hai
Nashe mai jhumta hai
Qaid krdo!
Shikanja hai dewangi
Aag hai tau jal krdo
Raqs krta hai sara samaanraqs
