patthar ke jigar vaalo ġham meñ vo ravānī hai

ḳhud raah banā legā bahtā huā paanī hai

patthar ke jigar walo gham mein wo rawani hai

KHud rah bana lega bahta hua pani hai

to jo nā-fahm haiñ vo bolte haiñ in dinoñ

jinheñ ḳhāmosh rahne sazā ma.alūm hai

ya to jo na-fahm hain wo bolte hain in dinon

ya jinhen KHamosh rahne ki saza malum hai

Shuja Khaavar

unheñ bhī jiine ke kuchh tajrabe hue hoñge

jo kah rahe haiñ ki mar jaanā chāhte haiñ ham

unhen bhi jine ke kuchh tajrabe hue honge

jo kah rahe hain ki mar jaana chahte hain hum
