    kuchh aaise haiñ jo zindagī ko mah-o-sāl se nāpte haiñ

    gosht se saag se daal se nāpte haiñ

    ḳhat-o-ḳhāl se gesuoñ mahak chaal se nāpte haiñ

    sa.ūbat se janjāl se nāpte haiñ

    apne a.amāl se nāpte haiñ

    magar ham ise azm-e-pāmāl se nāpte haiñ

    ye lamha jo guzrā mire ḳhuun us meñ surḳhī milī hai?

    mire āñsuoñ namak is lazzat meñ shāmil huā hai?

    pasīne se girdāb-e-sāhil huā hai?

    ye safar rahegā ki kuchh is hāsil huā hai

    ki jaise thī barsoñ se vaisī tishna-dilī hai?

    meñ kab se zamīñ par zamīñ tarah chal rahā huuñ

    ye dīvāna andhā safar kab kahāñ ke chhoḌegā mujh ko?

    maiñ is zindagī bahut bahāreñ ġhizā tarah khā chukā huuñ

    pahan oḌh kar pairahan tarah phaaḌ haiñ

    meñ resham kiiḌā huuñ ko.e meñ chhap jaatā huuñ Dar ke maare

    isī ko.e ko khātā rahtā huuñ aur kaaT kar is se aatā huuñ bāhar

    aur apne jiine maqsad sabab jānñā chāhtā huuñ

    mirā dil ḳhudā razā DhūñDhtā phir rahā hai

    mirā jism lazzāt justujū meñ lagā hai

    guzargāh-e-shām-o-sahar par kahīñ ek din maiñ ugā thā

    nabātāt tarah jiitā huuñ is kārgāh-e-jahāñ meñ

    na ehsās īmān īqān koī

    na duniyā meñ shāmil na ḳhud apnī pahchān koī

    gunah aur jahannam savāb aur jannat?

    ye kyuuñ hai ki be-muzad kuchh bhī nahīñ mil sakā hai

    na kal mil sakegā

    asātīr farmāñ-ravāon ke ahkām aur sūfiyā karāmat ke qisse

    payambar dil-soziyoñ ke mazāhir

    qalam-band haiñ sab!

    unheñ ham ne ta.avīz tarah apne galoñ meñ hamā.il kiyā hai

    inheñ ham ne tah-ḳhānoñ koTharī meñ muqaffal kiyā hai

    jahāñ laḌkhaḌāte haiñ in madad le ke chalte haiñ aage

    magar rāstoñ ta.ayyun nahīñ hai!

    maiñ bikhrā huā aadmī huuñ

    mirī zehnī bīmāriyoñ sabab ye zamīñ hai

    maiñ us din se Dartā huuñ jab barf saarī pighal kar

    ise ġharq kar de

    na.e āsmānī havādis

    sifar meñ badal deñ

    aadmī apne a.amāl se ḳhud

    ise ik kahānī banā de

    zamīñ shora pushtoñ āmāj-gah ban ga.ī hai

    ḳhudā ek hai yuuñ to vāvian meñ saaf likkhā huā hai

    magar zer-e-vāvain bhī chhoTī chhoTī bahut taḳhtiyāñ haiñ

    jalī harf jin ke bahut ummatoñ pata de rahe haiñ

    jo ye taḳhtiyāñ apnī gardan meñ laTkā.e

    zunnār pahne hue koī tasbīh thāme

    apnī gard-e-safar ke dhund meñ lipTe chale rahe haiñ

    zaitūn shāḳh tulsī ke patte

    havā meñ uḌe rahe haiñ

    chiyūñTiyoñ qatāreñ qaran-dar-qaran

    muḳhtalif pech-dar-pech rāhoñ se guzrī chalī rahī haiñ

    saikaḌoñ sar kaTe dhaḌ bahut rāstoñ par paḌe haiñ

    havan ho rahe haiñ

    yag ke mantroñ sadā

    aag meñ jalne vaalī sāmagrī bahut tez

    har taraf phail kar bas ga.ī hai havā meñ

    aur vavain qaid meñ jo ḳhudā hai

    lā-makāñ se

    jo hotā hai hotā rahegā

    baiThā chup-chāp sab dekhtā hai

    ham bhī kyuuñ na ḳhudā tarah yūñhī chup saadh leñ

    peḌ paudoñ mānind jiite raheñ

    zab.h hote raheñ!

    vo duā.eñ jo bārūd meñ bas kar

    bhaTaktī huī zer-e-arsh-e-barīñ phir rahī haiñ

    unheñ bhuul jaa.eñ

    zindagī ko ḳhudā atā jaan kar zehn mā.ūf kar leñ

    yāva-goī meñ zehnī hizyān meñ ḳhud ko masrūf kar leñ

    un meñ mil jaa.eñ jo zindagī ko

    gosht se saag se daal se nāpte haiñ

    mah-o-sāl se nāpte haiñ

    apnā ḳhuun piine lage haiñ

    chāk-dāmāniyāñ ġham se siine lage haiñ

    kuchh aaise hain jo zindagi ko mah-o-sal se napte hain

    gosht se sag se dal se napte hain

    KHat-o-KHal se gesuon ki mahak chaal se napte hain

    saubat se janjal se napte hain

    ya apne aamal se napte hain

    magar hum ise azm-e-pamal se napte hain

    ye lamha jo guzra mere KHun ki us mein surKHi mili hai?

    mere aansuon ka namak is ki lazzat mein shamil hua hai?

    pasine se girdab-e-sahil hua hai?

    ye la ka safar la rahega ki kuchh is ka hasil hua hai

    ki jaise thi barson se waisi hi tishna-dili hai?

    mein kab se zamin par zamin ki tarah chal raha hun

    ye diwana andha safar kab kahan ja ke chhoDega mujh ko?

    main is zindagi ki bahut si bahaaren ghiza ki tarah kha chuka hun

    pahan oDh kar pairahan ki tarah phaD di hain

    mein resham ka kiDa hun koe mein chhap jata hun Dar ke mare

    isi koe ko khata rahta hun aur kaT kar is se aata hun bahar

    aur apne jine ka maqsad sabab jaanna chahta hun

    mera dil KHuda ki raza DhunDhta phir raha hai

    mera jism lazzat ki justuju mein laga hai

    guzargah-e-sham-o-sahar par kahin ek din main uga tha

    nabaatat ki tarah jita hun is kargah-e-jahan mein

    na ehsas iman iqan koi

    na duniya mein shamil na KHud apni pahchan koi

    gunah aur jahannam sawab aur jannat?

    ye kyun hai ki be-muzad kuchh bhi nahin mil saka hai

    na kal mil sakega

    asatir farman-rawaon ke ahkaam aur sufiya ki karamat ke qisse

    payambar ki dil-soziyon ke mazahir

    qalam-band hain sab!

    unhen hum ne tawiz ki tarah apne galon mein hamail kiya hai

    inhen hum ne tah-KHanon ki koThari mein muqaffal kiya hai

    jahan laDkhaDate hain in ki madad le ke chalte hain aage

    magar raston ka tayyun nahin hai!

    main bikhra hua aadmi hun

    meri zehni bimariyon ka sabab ye zamin hai

    main us din se Darta hun jab barf sari pighal kar

    ise gharq kar de

    nae aasmani hawadis

    sifar mein badal den

    ya aadmi apne aamal se KHud

    ise ek kahani bana de

    zamin shora pushton ki aamaj-gah ban gai hai

    KHuda ek hai yun to wawian mein saf likkha hua hai

    magar zer-e-wawain bhi chhoTi chhoTi bahut taKHtiyan hain

    jali harf jin ke bahut ummaton ka pata de rahe hain

    jo ye taKHtiyan apni gardan mein laTkae

    zunnar pahne hue koi tasbih thame

    apni gard-e-safar ke dhund mein lipTe chale ja rahe hain

    zaitun ki shaKH tulsi ke patte

    hawa mein uDe ja rahe hain

    chiyunTiyon ki qataren qaran-dar-qaran

    muKHtalif pech-dar-pech rahon se guzri chali ja rahi hain

    saikaDon sar kaTe dhaD bahut raston par paDe hain

    hawan ho rahe hain

    yag ke mantron ki sada

    aag mein jalne wali samagri ki bahut tez bu

    har taraf phail kar bas gai hai hawa mein

    aur wawain ki qaid mein jo KHuda hai

    la-makan se

    jo hota hai hota rahega

    baiTha chup-chap sab dekhta hai

    hum bhi kyun na KHuda ki tarah yunhi chup sadh len

    peD paudon ki manind jite rahen

    zabh hote rahen!

    wo duaen jo barud ki bu mein bas kar

    bhaTakti hui zer-e-arsh-e-barin phir rahi hain

    unhen bhul jaen

    zindagi ko KHuda ki ata jaan kar zehn mauf kar len

    yawa-goi mein ya zehni hizyan mein KHud ko masruf kar len

    un mein mil jaen jo zindagi ko

    gosht se sag se dal se napte hain

    mah-o-sal se napte hain

    apna hi KHun pine lage hain

    chaak-damaniyan gham se sine lage hain
