This is one the popular poem of Allama Iqbal's. It's original language is Urdu. Sympathy:

Perched on the branch of a tree, was a nightingale sad and lonely

"The night has drawn near",

He was thinking, “I passed the day in flying around and


How can I reach up to the nest,

Darkness has enveloped everything"?

Hearing the nightingale wailing thus,

A glow-worm lurking nearby spoke thus

"With my heart and soul ready to help I am,

Though only an insignificant insect I am

Never mind if the night is dark,

I shall shed light if the way is dark

God has bestowed a torch on me,

He has given a shining lamp to me

The good in the world only those are.

Ready to be useful to others who are.
