Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Aaj Ki Raat

Aaj ki raat saaz-e-dard na chhed
Dukh se bhar-pur din tamaam hu’e
Aur kal ki khabr kise ma’lum?
Dosh o farda ki mith-chuki hain hudud
Ho no ho ab sahar, kise ma’lum?
Zindagi hech! Lekin aaj ki raat–
Izadiyat hai mumkin aaj ki raat–

Aaj ki rat saaz-e-dard na chhed
Ab na duhra fasanaha-e-alam
Apni qismat pe sogwar na ho
Fikr-e-farda utar-de dil se
‘Umr-e-rafta pe ashkbar na ho
‘Ahd-e-gram ki hikayaten mat puchh
Aaj ki rat saaz-e-dard na chhed.
