Sample of His Poetry:

Ho aql ki justajoo to deevana bano , 
Gardish ki talaash hai to paymana bano, 
Jalna hai to aatishe mohabbat me'n jalo, 
khaak banna hai to khalq ka parwana bano. 

Jo dil ka ghani hae wohi dar asl ghani hae, 
Daulat se koii yaas tavangar nahi'n hotaa. 

Falak par chaRhne waley bekamand abb hotey jatey hai'n, 
Shahaan -e- namvar uzlat pasand abb hotey jatey hai'n, 
Arab ki , hind ki , cheen kii fezao'n mei'n Jo uRhte thaiey, 
Woh Pakistan key pinjrey me'n band abb hotey jatey hai'n.
