लफ़्ज़ एहसास-से छाने लगे, ये तो हद है
लफ़्ज़ माने भी छुपाने लगे, ये तो हद है

आप दीवार गिराने के लिए आए थे
आप दीवार उठाने लगे, ये तो हद है

ख़ामुशी शोर से सुनते थे कि घबराती है
ख़ामुशी शोर मचाने लगे, ये तो हद है

आदमी होंठ चबाए तो समझ आता है
आदमी छाल चबाने लगे, ये तो हद है

जिस्म पहरावों में छुप जाते थे, पहरावों में-
जिस्म नंगे नज़र आने लगे, ये तो हद है

लोग तहज़ीब-ओ-तमद्दुन के सलीक़े सीखे
लोग रोते हुए गाने लगे, ये तो हद है

 

lafz ehasaas-se chhaane lage,

ye to had hai lafz maane bhee chhupaane lage,

ye to had hai aap deevaar giraane ke lie

aae the aap deevaar uthaane lage,

ye to had hai khaamushee shor se

sunate the ki ghabaraatee hai

khaamushee shor machaane lage,

ye to had hai aadamee honth chabae

to samajh aata hai aadamee chhaal chabaane lage,

ye to had hai jism paharaavon mein

chhup jaate the, paharaavon mein-

jism nange nazar aane lage,

ye to had hai log tahazeeb-o-tamaddun ke

saleeqe seekhe log rote hue gaane lage, ye to had hai

 

The words started filtering with realization, this is the limit.
Even the words started to hide, this is the limit

you came to demolish the wall
You started lifting the wall, this is the limit

listened to silence noises that are frightened
Silence started making noise, this is the limit

If a man chews his lips, then he understands
Man started chewing bark, this is the limit

The body used to hide in the clothes, in the clothes-
The body began to appear bare, this is the limit

People learned the ways of Tehzeeb-o-Tamdun
People started crying and singing, this is the limit
