The start of the day has been bright and sunny. I wish to play, but my friends are all on the other side of the jungle. I will cross the jungle, for its bright and lit and that chases away the fear in my heart. Once I reach, I lose count of the hours and suddenly, everything is dark. I have to reach my home, but then there is no one to guide me back. My friends have all gone back to their homes and they don’t answer my requests for help.
Much like this, in life too, we will have many fair weather friends who will be there during sunshine but not when it rains. With age, towards the twilight of our lives, for many too, it will be like the boy who has lost count of time and is all alone and lonely.
Just a thought but frightening, isn’t it..?
