Youth, be warned!

He crossed the first barrier with colours
As a delicate child of ten
For the joy of the beloved,
Performance at the second barrier
Was equally successful
With the maximum number of distinctions,
An unparalleled achievement
Gained at the third barrier
Which opened doors to enter
The highest academic institute
To proudly and boldly realize
His and others long awaited dreams.
But so brutally and wildly crushed
And now made to lie on bed
Surrounded by tears many shed
Deprived of the vital body part,’leg’
Sacrificed in the name of the demon,’rag’.
