A Friend!

Teenage hormones more often than not
Puts a person into trouble
Puts into a situation when he needs
His family and friends the most!

Ravi was once trapped into such
And he couldn’t understand much
He had a conversation with someone
And it was over the internet and gossips begun!

Something over internet spread fast
Faster than what Ravi had anticipated
And it eventually reached the phone
Of his friends and family!

He was already feeling guilty
Of what he had done
And at this point, he just hoped
His family and friends supported him!

However, contrary to this
He was being isolated from his friend circle
He was being bullied
And being looked upon as a criminal!

Well, as the saying goes
A friend in need is a friend in deed
And he just found a helping hand
In the form of Savin!

Savin stood by him
When he lost all his hope
When he was about to make another mistake
When he had given up!

However, on a Sunday morning
Ravi finally gave up the fight
And Savin stood there
Beside the burning pyre of Ravi!

Savin looked at the people there
And hoped they attended him and not his funeral!
