Aabroo - Honour

Nikalna khuld se Aadam ka sunte aaye hain lekin
Bohut be aabroo ho kar tere kooche se hum nikle

- 'Ghalib'
 

Museebat mein shareefon ki kabhi izzat nahin ghat'ti
Jalaa bhi daalo sone ko magar qeemat nahin ghat'ti

- 'Nama'loom'
 

Aaise Jeene se to hai doob ke marna behtar
Aabroo jis ki na ho woh koi insaan hi nahin

- 'Nama'loom'
 

 

'Umr-e-daraaz maang kar laaye the chaar din Do aarzoo mein kat gaye do intezaar mein
