‘Impossibility Is Relative’

You hail from a far off land,
Of knowledge and agony.
Your genius so very young,
In a life ephemeral.
Your words of wisdom and hope,
Pen in hand, now books by heart.
Your language of science, creed,
Lessons of a world complete.
Your struggle, a pivotal role,
To wake a people in slumber.
Your time extraordinary,
To spread a desired change.
Your conviction courageous,
A stand against tyrants, fools.
Your face, a light in the gloom,
Distinguishing truth from error.
Your memory, soul abide,
To hearts, minds authentic.
