Sher 11

agar shu.ūr na ho to bahisht hai duniyā

baḌe azaab meñ guzrī hai āgahī ke saath

agar shuur na ho to bahisht hai duniya

baDe azab mein guzri hai aagahi ke sath

hameñ ḳhabar hai zan-e-fāhisha hai ye duniyā

so ham bhī saath ise be-nikāh rakhte haiñ

hamein KHabar hai zan-e-fahisha hai ye duniya

so hum bhi sath ise be-nikah rakhte hain

tum ne kahā thā chup rahnā so chup ne bhī kyā kaam kiyā

chup rahne aadat ne kuchh aur hameñ badnām kiyā

tum ne kaha tha chup rahna so chup ne bhi kya kaam kiya

chup rahne ki aadat ne kuchh aur hamein badnam kiya

mere suḳhan daad bhī us ko dījiye

vo jis aarzū mujhe shā.er banā ga.ī

mere suKHan ki dad bhi us ko hi dijiye

wo jis ki aarzu mujhe shaer bana gai

subūt maañg rahe haiñ mirī tabāhī

mujhe tabāh kiyā jin kaj-adā.ī ne

subut mang rahe hain meri tabahi ka

mujhe tabah kiya jin ki kaj-adai ne
