Bahshate barti gayin hijra ke aazar ke saath
Ab to him baat kerte bhi nahin gum-khwaar ke saath.

Humne ek umra baser ki gume yaar ke saath
Mere do din na jiye hijra ke aazar ke saath.

Ab to hum ghar se nikalte to rakh dete hain
Taak per izzate-saadat* bhi dastaar ke saath. *Sayyado ki izzet

Ek to khwaab liye phirte hai galiyn-galiyon
Is per bhi takraar kerte hai khareeddar ke saath.

Shaher ka shaher he naaseh ho kya keejiyega
Verna hum rind to bhir jaate hai do chaar ke saath.


Hum ko is shaher main tameer ka sauda hai jahan
Log memaar (hatya ki jagah) ko chun dete hai deewar ke saath.
