When chaos echoes through the enchanted mind,
And thoughts stir a whirlwind of emotions,
When hopelessness has given birth to desperation,
When recognition is the only salvation,
When dreams have failed to become a reality,
And then all of a sudden,
A young fragile mind has shown me light,
A young boy of maybe ten roaming the streets with a glow in his eyes but with a heavy bag and a heavier heart,
He said,”I am very worried”.
And went into a daze.
Me and my friend froze not knowing what to utter,
His pain embraced and touched us in a million of ways,
We considered ourselves naive beings,reeling in negativity.
And vowed to always be positive and work harder.
“Afzal” his name was,
Teaching us in a fraction of seconds,an entire eternity.
