MORE BY Akhtar Saeed Khan

    ma.āl-e-gardish-e-lail-o-nahār kuchh bhī nahīñ

    hazār naqsh haiñ aur āshkār kuchh bhī nahīñ

    har ek moḌ pe duniyā ko ham ne dekh liyā

    sivā.e kashmakash-e-rozgār kuchh bhī nahīñ

    nishān-e-rāh mile bhī yahāñ to kaise mile

    sivā.e ḳhāk-e-sar-e-rahguzār kuchh bhī nahīñ

    bahut qarīb rahī hai ye zindagī ham se

    bahut aziiz sahī e'tibār kuchh bhī nahīñ

    na ban paḌā ki garebāñ ke chaak lete

    shu.ūr ho ki junūñ iḳhtiyār kuchh bhī nahīñ

    khile jo phuul vo dast-e-ḳhizāñ ne chhīn liye

    nasīb-e-dāman-e-fasl-e-bahār kuchh bhī nahīñ

    zamāna ishq ke māroñ ko maat kyā degā

    diloñ ke khel meñ ye jiit haar kuchh bhī nahīñ

    ye merā shahr hai maiñ kaise maan luuñ 'aḳhtar'

    na rasm-o-rāh na vo kū-e-yār kuchh bhī nahīñ

    maal-e-gardish-e-lail-o-nahaar kuchh bhi nahin

    hazar naqsh hain aur aashkar kuchh bhi nahin

    har ek moD pe duniya ko hum ne dekh liya

    siwae kashmakash-e-rozgar kuchh bhi nahin

    nishan-e-rah mile bhi yahan to kaise mile

    siwae KHak-e-sar-e-rahguzar kuchh bhi nahin

    bahut qarib rahi hai ye zindagi hum se

    bahut aziz sahi e'tibar kuchh bhi nahin

    na ban paDa ki gareban ke chaak si lete

    shuur ho ki junun iKHtiyar kuchh bhi nahin

    khile jo phul wo dast-e-KHizan ne chhin liye

    nasib-e-daman-e-fasl-e-bahaar kuchh bhi nahin

    zamana ishq ke maron ko mat kya dega

    dilon ke khel mein ye jit haar kuchh bhi nahin

    ye mera shahr hai main kaise man lun 'aKHtar'

    na rasm-o-rah na wo ku-e-yar kuchh bhi nahin
