My Best Friend - Poem by abinash panda

Deep down a legend began
when i was declared a failure again
i became the spoilt hopeless kid,
Discarded, mocked, kicked & bullied.

but then came a helping hand,
like a ray of light in the darkest land,
he blew my cloud of tensions
and let my frustrations rain
he viewed failure as a part of life,
which always haunts & gives us pain,
he taught me to see the bigger picture
where there is much more in life to gain.

blessed with optimism he walked with me together,
cold or warm whatever be the weather,
he knew success was a herculean task.
Especially after so many failures
self confidence was a lot to ask...

still he had immense faith in me,
when folks around called me a waste.
he warned them not to be in haste,
they looked at me through the same bars,
while others saw me with despise
He saw me as a rising star.

he taught me not to lose hope,
cherish it till the last breathing,
not to search for our answers around
when the real solution lies within..

so began the legend of 2 friends,
who never followed the common trends,
rather they left an indelible trail,
which generations followed without fail.

they justified the symbol of friendship,
trusting each other beyond limitless ends.
no doubt the evil spirits envied them,
left no stones unturned to give them a shake,
but their friendship was an eternal bond,
a bond, so strong even almighty cant break.

'come my friend', said one of them,
lets show the world again,
that friendship is just not an unbreakable bond,
but also the source to eternity & beyond..

he believed me to be a blessed being,
but i called himself a god's blessing,
the world called him my friend.
but i considered him my world.........
