Margalla Unhain Kehna!


Margalla tera daman, kin Gulab phoolon se,

barishon main surkh hua,

muskurahatain kitni zindaagi se rooth gain,

kaanch ki tarah kirnain, patharon pe toot gain,

zindagi ki rahon main, muntazir nigahon ka,

bechigragh sehnon main, kis tarah alam bantain,

kaisey chasm-e-nam bantain, barishain jo dho na sakin

sabz rah-guzaron main, dagh be-basi ke hain,

har taraf nazaron main, aansoon ki jhilmil hai,

zakhm behisi key hain, margalla paharon main,

ja’nkani key gharon main, zindagi ki kuch kirnain,

der se bujhi hon gi,

intezaar ho ga jinhain, dard mand yaaron ka,

aakhri saharon ka,

Margalla unhain kehna, jo chiragh jaltey rahey,

maut ki hawaon se, der tak jo lartey rahey,

zindagi ke kuch tajir, zindagi nahi detey,

ikhteyar rakhtey hain, par khushi nahin detey,

Margalla unhain kehna,

khwahishon ke sodagar,

shohraton ke bistar par, so rahey hain ghaflat main,

Log ro rahey hain par, Log ro rahey hain par!

-Dr. Yusuf Shahid
