I Bear Hardships On Myself

I bear hardships on myself, I am unconcerned with others
Alas! How strange, I am the oppressor, I am the ignorant
I existed only till the time Thy Splendor appeared
I am the falsehood which is annihilated by the Truth
From the knowledge’s sea divers came out with pearls in hand
Alas, O deprivation! A mere pebble collector on the sea shore I am
My disgrace itself is the demonstration of my nobility
I am the negligence which the angels ardently desire
O the existence’ assemblage! Be not proud of your beauty
You are a mere picture of the assemblage, I am the assemblage
O Iqbal! I am in constant search for myself
                       I am the traveler as well as the destination
