             He was a man of clear conscience,
             Never leaned upon others for guidance.
             Life was a challenge for him,
             Trying hard to fulfill his dreams.
             His friends suggested...
             living life to the fullest,
             He got carried away in the zest.
             He dabbled in drinks and drugs,
            Which led to the boisterous parties with…
            …alcohol filled mugs.
             It seemed a pleasure momentarily,
             But shredding his life gradually.
             He forgot the value of time n work,
             Allowed his life to twist and jerk.
             It was too late when he realized,
             He lost everything in his life.
             He sat desolately near the shelf,
             Stacked with his trophies,
             His mind wandered in nostalgic memories.
             He cringed and uttered a cry of pain,
             His life sank in a quagmire,
             He lost his dignity and was ashamed.
