Ghootan

​Doobta hoon main ubharta hoon,

Har roz yun hi guzarta  hoon,

Ghootan bas is baat ki rashid 

Doob ke fir kyun ubharta hoon.
“rashid ali”

Sadness

​Baat Kuch aisi jo samajh nahi aati 

Dabe paaon hi Sahi ab khushi nahi aati,

Aashiyaano ka khwab bhala hum kaise dekhe

Ujalon me bhi jab roshni nahi aati.
“rashid ali” 

Qarar

​Bechaini aur qaraar bhi hai

Ye thodi khushi udhaar bhi hai,

Khayal karte aur bhool bhi jaate

Kuch to kanhi bacha hisaab bhi hai 
“rashid ali”

Ye Zindagi

Hai ye zindagi looteri

loot leti hai

Hai kuchh bhi nahi

Fir bhi samet leti hai,

Begunaah aur rangeen si chamakti hai

Ulajh gaye jo isme

To sab kuchh udhed deti hai,

Ki khwahish bade muddat se

ki ab bach bhi le,

Mazboor hain fitrat se

Jo isme dhakel deti hai.

 

“rashid ali”

Manzil

Gehra, aur gehra utar gaya

Mera bhi dil ab samander sa ban gaya,

Firta tha jo talaash manzilon ki firaaq me

Wanhi manzil ab mera hayaat ban gaya.

 

“rashid ali”

Sahara

Ye nadiyaa bhi Teri ye darya bhi tera

Kanara bhi tera sahara bhi tera,

Doobenge aakhir kaise yanha pe

Ye naiyya bhi teri khewaiyya bhi tera

“rashid ali “

Surat

​Kaafiron si surat ab hui jaati hai,

Roshni bhi hame kanha nazar aati hai,

“rashid ali “
