Sher


isi ummid par chalte hain
ki raste ke us par
koi humare intzar mein khada hai
kai mod humne ghalat liye hain
kya pata raste ka ant hi naa ho
kya pata int zar khatam hi na ho

intahan ka khauf zehen mein utra hai
harna ek fitrat ban chuka hai
hum to khuda ki ibadat bhi nahin karte
ayena dekhkardari hui aanknon se hain ladte
jaane kya isbar haathon ki lakiron mein likha hai?

Humari aawaz ki aadat na lagana,
kuch lafz zahan ko cheer sakte hain
is baar humare saath zyaada waqt na bitana
kuch pal tanhayee mein bhi bolte hain.
bhool jana wo lamhe jo humne itihas ke panno mein likhe the
unsi judi yaadein aankhon ko num karte hain

Nafrat ki nagahon se na dekh zaalim
maafi ki arzu humari fitrat mein nahin
lafzon ki khata ka dosh humpar na daal zaalim
is baar humari koi galti nahin

abhi bhi khafa ho humse
ki raat ke nashe mein sab doob gaya
kya aarzuon ke gagan mein ek aur insaan humse rooth gaya
kya karein ye waqt hi aisa zalim hai
chand shabd kehne se logon se nata chhoot gaya

ek arsa ho gaya hai apko nazron mein utare hue
ye waqt bhi chal chal kar thak gaya hai
kye guftagu ke liye sirf chaand hi baaki hai
ya humare anjuman ke beech kuch aur bhi bacha hai?
