Ajnabi Khauf Fizaon Mein

Ajnabi Khauf Fizaon Mein Basa Ho Jaise;
Shehar Ka Shehar Hi Aseb Zada Ho Jaise;

Raat Ke Pichle Pahar Aati Hain Aawazein Si;
Door Sehra Mein Koi Cheekh Raha Ho Jaise;

Dar-o-Deewar Pe Chayi Hai Udasi Aisi;
Aaj Har Ghar Se Janaza Sa Utha Ho Jaise;

Muskurata Hun Pa-e-Khatir-e-Ahabab Magar;
Dukh To Chehre Kee Lakiron Pe Saja Ho Jaise;

Ab Agar Doob Geya Bhi To Marunga Na ‘Kamal’
Bahte Pani Pe Mera Naam Likha Ho Jaise!

Har ghar se janaza sa utha ho jaise

Ahmad Kamal Poetry

ajnabi khauf fizaon main basa ho jaise
shahar ka shahar hi aseb zada ho jaise

rat ke pichle pahar ati hain avazain si
dur shahara main koi chiKh raha ho jaise

dar-o-divar pe chai hai udasi aisi
aj har ghar se janaza sa utha ho jaise

muskurata hun pa-e-Khatir-e-ahabab magar
dukh to chehre ki lakiron pe saja ho jaise

ab agar dub gaya bhi to marunga na ?Kamal?
bahte pani pe mera nam likha ho jaise
