That Abandoned Bike!

Life changes us

whether we like it or not

Sometimes we leave what we love and

some other times that love leaves us

Just like that abandoned bike

along the lake

that was left to rust

No one knew where it come from

Whose bike was it and

why it was left there

But, it laid there

tilted towards one side

As if it was waiting for its owner or

may be for someone who can adopt it like his own

and take it home

But, it was abandoned like a neglected child,

like a left-out pet

We humans do the same to people and places

Sometimes we are too selfish to think for the ones

whom we leave behind

Sometimes we are too engrossed in our own lives

that we fail to feel the pain of those whom we leave behind

Just like that abandoned bike!
