Went with my friends, making myself a fool.
Who knew I had to face the river’s wrath?
Trying to swim in the water, known only to a few
With the desire to learn swimming,I was ready.
Then, I suddenly started to drown in the depth of river,
My friends when seeing me started to shiver.
I started moving my legs and hands very fast,
It was useless, I felt overcome, but I had to last!
I cried in a loud, forceful tone, “Save me!”
I started to feel unconscious, unable to see.
When I opened my eyes, I felt myself at the brink
I was amazed, dumbfounded, unable to think
I thanked him expressing feelings of joy.
We went home in a mood of cheer.
This became a horrible day that I won’t forget,
But from parents, it was a secret kept.
