किस्मत का ये मज़ाक Kismat ka ye mazaak

किस्मत का ये मज़ाक भी कितना अजीब था
नसीब ये कि तेरा हर रफ़ीक मेरा रकीब था
यूँ तो ता ज़िन्दगी तूफानों से लड़ते रहे
मगर कश्ती तब डूबी जब किनारा करीब था

Kismat ka ye mazaak bhi kitna ajeeb tha
naseeb ye ki tera har rafeek mera rakeeb tha
yun to ta zindagi toofaanon se ladte rahe
magar kashti tab doobi jab kinara kareeb tha

(Fate played a wonderful game with me
it was luck that whosoever was your friend
became my enemy
like this I went on playing for full life with storms
however my boat sank when I was about to reach the shore)
