There are three kinds of people

At hot noon in a summer season,
I used to be out with a reason,
Troops of boy, all elder to me,
In an orchard, with them, I used to be,
Caring their mangos with many kinds,
So many boys so many minds.

Long gone the days, I lost my childhood.
Yet, I remember it with a pretty good,

Learning from that dreamy event, I concluded,
There are three kinds of people, I included,
One who climbs up the tree, and
Second, who that stone to the mango, and
The third who sat under the tree with a hope.

Things that lured at that time, a joyful cup
I always stood with them, who climbed up..
