From Shadows To Light - Poem by M. Ashaq Raza

From no where to somewhere
Without guidance and care
With some hope and despair
With some willpower and dare

Traveled whole the night
Ways narrow and tight
A man in black-in-white
From shadows to light

Never saw this side or that
He never tired and sat
The people laughed at
And said him mad

He was but all time traveling
Falling down and assembling
Rising up and crawling
Injuries all while forgetting

People looking for, when meadows
Discovering he, why, what and how
Passed whole life in shadows
Granted light but to shadows

Divorcing all life comforts then
Who shaped this world modern?
He was Aristotle, Galileo, and Newton
Watt, Fleming, Shakespeare & Edison
