3 strangers -
Bound by fate.
1, in the canal,
2, walking down the lane.
A mild bark, fell on deaf ears
A cry for help, in vain.
While passers-by, kept passing by -
2 little boys stopped a while.
Only to be soon united by
A bond stronger than love
Care for a fellow being in pain
Who struggled on it’s own.
The 3 of them, pulled each other out
From the vicious circle of 'self'
After smiling once at each other's face
For their lonely walks, they left.
