Report Story


He is slow to act and is most likely to be young

Once neglected things trip, that is the road surface

Raised a sharp stone, the body after stumbling

Back and forth, almost fell

When he steadied himself, no one was around

It was getting dark, and the market-goers were still on their way

Well, he found a rock by the side of the river

Strike hard, and the stumbling block crumbles

He kept the trifling matter to himself

To no one, and all his life

To save people, to help the poor, to plead the wrong of others

Radiant afterwards, auspicious, happy!
