Benefit Of Doubt - Poem by Udaya Pant

Benefit of Doubt

We two always were friends
Seldom did we have dispute
He had his interest and aura
I too had held my own repute

He often admired my actions
I too lavishly praised his deeds
From my side, it was self-less
His side too I thought it indeed

Soon we both had fallen apart
He was elevated in his position
Did not like my ways any more
I took it a temporary phenomenon

But then he started to exhibit
In so many words and ways
His attitude and the new vanity
Through his actions and deeds

I had realised it hard way now
He was being a bit jealous to me
After he found that I never flatter
Yet he may have expected from me

I still think he would now change
Do some thinking and introspection
And realise he was on wrong side
If not, I give him benefit of doubt
