O wave! Plunge headlong into the dark seas (from Baal-i-Jibreel)

by Allama Muhammad Iqbal

English version by Naeem Siddiqui
Original Language Urdu

O wave! Plunge headlong into the dark seas,
And change thyself with many a twist and turn;
Thou wast not born for tile solace of the shore;
Arise, untamed, and find a path for thyself.
