tum apne aqidon ke neze 
har dil men utare jaate ho 

ham log mohabbat vaale hain 
tum ḳhanjar kyuun lahrate ho 

is shahr men naġhme bahne do 
basti men hamen bhi rahne do 

ham palanhar hain phulon ke 
ham ḳhushbu ke rakhvale hain 

tum kis ka lahu piine aa.e 
ham pyaar sikhane vaale hain 

is shahr men phir kya dekhoge 
jab harf yahan mar ja.ega 

jab teġh pe lai kaT ja.egi 
jab sher safar kar ja.ega 

jab qatl hua sur sazon ka 
jab kaal paḌa avazon ka 

jab shahr khanDar ban ja.ega 
phir kis par sang uThaoge 

apne chehre a.inon men 
jab dekhoge Dar jaoge 

Us Shaks Ko To Bichadeny Ka Saleka Nahi ” FARAZ” Jatay Hoe Khud KO Mere Pass Chor Gaya .

Faraz? wo ankhain jheel c gehri tu hain magar! un main koi aks meray nam ka nahin Asahqi sy uski usy bewafa na jan!! Aadat ki bat aur hai wo dil ka bura nahin

Maine jis shahkas ko phoolon se sajaya tha ?Faraz?!! Meray seene main usee shahkas ka kanta utra

Humaray baad nahin ay ga tumhain chahat ka asa maza ?Faraz?! Tum logon se kehtay phiroo gay mujhe chahao us ki tarah!

Unglian toot gaen pather tarashte tarashte ?Faraz?!! Aur jab bani soorat-e-yaar tu kharidar aa gaye..

Ungliyan aaj bhi is soch me ghum hai faraz Usnay kaisay naye haath ko thaama hoga

Mili saza jo mujhe wo kisi khata pe na thi faraz Mujh pe jurm jo saabit howa wo wafaa ka tha

Suna Hai Zindagi Imtehan Leti Hai FARAZ Par Yahan To Imtehano Ne Zindagi Leli

Main us ka hoon ,ye raaz tu wo jan gaya hai ?Faraz?!!! Wo kis ka hai ye sawal mujhe sonay nahin deta!
