She listened quietly,

She was hurt but,

She hesitated to speak up

He took all the blame on him,

Stood there firmly but,

Hesitated to speak for himself.

His 11th birthday, He knew;

His parents are busy,

Money has more value,

Hence; He Hesitated,

To ask for celebration.

She wanted a doll,

Knew; mum's working  hard,

As usual, hesitated to ask,

For present again.


They all hesitated,

They all miscalculated,

Their chances refuted.

Their lives revolted.
