Maadaam

aap bevajah pareshaan-sii kyo.n hai.n maadaam
log kahate hai.n to phir Thiik hii kahate ho.nge
mere ehabaab ne tahaziib na siikhii hogii
mere maahaul me.n i.nsaan na rahate ho.nge

nuur-e-saramaayaa se hai ruu-e-tamaddun kii jilaa
ham jahaa.N hai.n vahaa.N tahaziib nahii.n pal sakatii
mufalisii hiss-e-lataafat ko miTaa detii hai
bhuuk aadaab ke saa.Nche me.n nahii.n Dhal sakatii

Qabr (Nazm)

Ajam ke shahroN meN ek shahar  ka hai ye  qissa
Yeh raft O bood ka ek silsilaa jo qaayam hai
BhaNvar meN jis ke har ek cheez doob jaati hai
Suna hai us meN kisi qasbe ka rayees baRa
PhaNsa kuchh aisa, koi chaal kaargar na hui
Har ek tibbee madad, har dawa, ilaaj, gharaz
Woh sab jo qabza E insaan O mumkinat meN tha
Kiya, tamam maseeha qareeb O door jo the
Talab kiye gaye, sab ko zar E kaseer diya
