He saw him fumbling alone in darkness
created by himself by blowing out
the only light, burning at night;
He realized he will certainly perish.
He came to his door and asked for entry
all the other one heard darkness calling!
He rudely screamed at him to go away
instead of going away he stood his ground.
Softly and silently he turned on his light
to share its glow with his brother in plight!
Once the darkness gone he realized his fault
and fell at his feet for screaming in fright.
The teacher only held him up
told him to be careful and loving
towards his own light
and never blow it away in night.
