He Is A Man

A man of true bravery.

Daring he went in

where the house  caught fire

without any thought he moved in

minding not the flames that raged  with ire

caring  not his life that is precious  although .


He broke open the house

locked by the parents a few minutes from now

keeping the children  inside the house

as they being working all time  for income low

both venturing out for  a short break although


The man opposite seeing the fire

rushed in and broke open the door

which would have turned to be a pyre

had he not  broke open  the door

seeing  the two children  sitting although.


Seated where the mother had placed them

scared to see the flames going high

made no noise as they saw death  around the

waiting for their mom to come after the buy

the kids frozen to death although.


He flung the door and darted in

pulled the kids and perched them on his shoulders

took a sharp turn  and ran hearing no din

at the same time came down the boulders

a miraculous escape it was although.



What an attempt  it was I stood  amazed .

What a man , my heart cries out to him

What a life for the toddlers who still are dazed

The act made me understand that people like him

still live in this world of deceit and greed. burning housealthough.
