I knew a man, deprived of his rights,
He wanted to live, with delight.
His peers understood, when teachers explained,
School years went, in disdain.
He went off to college, hoping to perform better,
It was a lost cause, he admitted later.
He got a job, he gave his complete,
He was never appreciated, but always critiqued.
When he got promoted, no one congratulate,
When others did, he had to participate.
He got married, his peers attended the wedding,
They ate and made merry, went without giving a gift.
He was frustrated, He rose to the occasion,
It was a fight he said, he will win every-time.
