Khauf ki aasteen

Khauf ki aasteen hai ke bhala shak ka gareebaaN 
dard ka khareedar kare kya jub thum jaae meezaan

yuN ruKh ki taRap sulgaa rahee hai shub ki Khamoshi
juN sabr ka pehloo kay nishaanay ka hua imkaan

ab roz-e-hashar taak rahe ho baRi shiddat-o-hararat se
kab aaKhri mashki ki maTTI ko uChaalay ga ye insaan

reh reh ke jabr-e-imaamat seh ke jo hum beThay
kis jurrat-e-hikmat ko uThaaeN sar-e-armaan.
