Individuality

Since the life of the Uinverse comes from the strength of self
Life is propotional to this strength
When a drop of water gets the self's lesson by heart
It makes its worthless existence a Pearl
As the grass discovered the power of growth in itself
Its aspiration clove the breast of the Garden
Because the earth has a being that is firm
The captive Moon goes round it perpetually
The being of the Sun is stronger than that of earth
Therefore is the earth bewitched by the Sun's eye
When life gathers strength from the self
The river of life expands into an Ocean.

Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal.
