Itna dushwar nahin maut ko taley rakhna

Itna dushwar nahin maut ko taley rakhna
Sar jo kat jaye to dastar sambhaley rakhna

Chot khana, magar is tarah ke lodhey uthey
Zulmat gham isi tarey se ujahely rakhna

Apne ehbaab ko seeney se lagaye phira
Aik khanjar bhi jaib mein daley rakhna

Meri pehchan mere peer-e-hin zakhm se hai
Ab bhi aezaaz sahi shaal do shaley rakhna

Dasht ehsaas ki hiddat bhi kayamat hai nadeem
Kuch zaroori tou nahin paon mein chaley rakhna
