Aawaaz-e-aadam


dabegi kab talak aawaaz-e-aadam, ham bhi dekheiNge
rukeiNge kab talak jazbaat-e-barham, ham bhi dekheiNge
chalo yuuN hi sahii ye jaur-e-paiham, ham bhi dekheiNge

dar-e-zindaaN se dekheiN ya urooj-e-daar se dekheiN
tumheiN ruswaa sar-e-baazaar-e-aalam ham bhi dekheiNge
zaraa dam lo ma'aal-e-shaukat-e-jam ham bhi dekheiNge

ba-zom-e-quwwat-e-faulaad-o-aahan dekh lo tum bhii
ba-faiz-e-jazbaa-e-iimaan-e-mohkam ham bhi dekheiNge
jabeen-e-kaj-kulaahii Khaak par Kham ham bhi dekheiNge

mukaafaat-e-amal taareeKh-e-insaaN kii rawaayat hai
karoge kab talak naawak faraaham ham bhi dekheiNge
kahaaN tak hai tumhaare zulm meiN dam ham bhi dekheiNge

ye hangaam-e-widaa-e-shab hai aie zulmat ke farzando
sahar ke dosh par gulnaar parcham ham bhi dekheiNge
tumheiN bhi dekhna hoga ye aalam ham bhi dekheiNge
