dekha jo aaina to mujhe sochna pada

dekha jo aaina to mujhe sochna pada
khud se na mil saka to mujhe sochna pada

uska jo khat mila to mujhe sochna pada
apna sa woh laga to mujhe sochna pada

mujhko tha yeh gumaan ke mujhi mein hai ik ana
dekhi teri ana to mujhe sochna pada

(ana – ego, self)

dunia samjh rahi thi ke naraz mujhse hai
lekin woh jab mila to mujhe sochna pada

ik din woh mere aib ginaane laga ‘Farag’
jab khud hi thak gaya to mujhe sochna pada

(aib – fault, vice)

देखा जो आइना तो मुझे सोचना पड़ा
खुद से ना मिल सका तो मुझे सोचना पड़ा

उसका जो ख़त मिला तो मुझे सोचना पड़ा
अपना सा वो लगा तो मुझे सोचना पड़ा

मुझको था यह गुमान के मुझी में है इक अना
देखी तेरी अना तो मुझे सोचना पड़ा

दुनिया समझ रही थी के नाराज़ मुझसे है
लेकिन वो जब मिला तो मुझे सोचना पड़ा

इक दिन मेरे वो मेरे ऐब गिनाने लगा ‘फराग’
जब खुद ही थक गया तो मुझे सोचना पड़ा

    Please correct the line….. ik din woh mere aib ginaane laga ‘Farag’
    jab khud hi thak gaya to mujhe sochna pada….

    Its ‘Kharab’ (Bad) not Farag !!

    No. The word is Farag after poet Farag Roohvi’s name.
