Fikr

Subah sunehri, shaant dopehri,
Aur raat gehri lagti hain.
Bachpan masoom, jawaani mehroom,
Aur budhaapa sukoon lagta hain.

Aasmaan neeli chatri
Aur dharti woh jannat lagti hain:
Jiska har kona hara-bhara hain
Kyunki aaj mera pet bhara hain.

Akhbaaro ki surkhiyo mein chipi siskiyaan
Pi gaya mein leke chaai ki chuskiyaan
Duniya maano mere haathon mein simti hain.
Meri raay, meri parchaayi, aur meri syahi hi sahi hain.

Duniya ek kora kaagaz,
Meri soch us kalam sa lagta hain:
Jiski syaahi se mera rom-rom bhara hain.
Kyunki aaj mera pet bhara hain.

Do waqt ke roti ki parwaah nahin,
Do waqt ke ibaadat ki fikr hain.
Raashan ki bhookhi mehfilo mein.
Aaj saashan ka hi zikr hain.

Dharm ke naam par zameer bant gaye,
Shaheedo ke jaane kitne gardan kat gaye,
Aur mera haath dhara ka dhara hain.
Kyunki aaj mera pet bhara hain.

Neend tooti to dekha:
Charo taraf aatank mach gaya,
Meine aah bhari aur kaha:
Chalo mein bach gaya!

Khaane mein zaayka, paani mein swaad,
Harkato mein tehzeeb, lab par samwaad,
Meer-Ghalib, Shirin-Farhaad,
Canvas ke rang, aur urdu harfo se baraste daad,

Khwaab hain jaise muqammal,
Aur jag saara adhoora hain.
Pyaar ke bhookhe is jahaan mein
Aaj har kisi ka pet bhara hain.
