Faith in humanity restored..

I am walking on a crowded street
And see a guy in trench coat
And a cap on his head on the starry night
Why I was being so gazey to Him no idea
May be it was that trench coat in such a weather
Or because He was looking at an old man
Standing near the footpath and waiting
For the traffic to halt so that he can cross the road

The traffic halts just for a few moments
That old man tries but it’s difficult for him
To walk quickly and cross the road
Before the vehicles starts roaring on the roads
And I get worried as I lose sight of that coat guy
Because I was busy looking at the old man
But find that coat guy running and holding the old man
and helping him reach the other end of the street safely

I try to follow that coat guy
So somehow I cross the street in a hurry
And search in the crowd for that shade of yellow coat
And see far ahead a similar looking guy walking away
I run and follow him as my eagerness was exponentially increasing
Why did he help the old man? Why was I following him?
I needed answers to it and He was just 1 hand away from me
And I tap him with my index finger and wait for him to turn

I see a line of blood running down the forehead of that guy
All the questions forgotten and without any words
I hold his elbow and take him to the nearest chemist shop
There the necessary treatment is done and on asking he replied
“I met an accident 2 blocks back and hurt my head but couldn’t find a chemist shop
So wore a cap to stop the blood flow as much as possible
But on the way helped that old man without thinking of myself
Because my Dad passed away in a road accident last Thursday”
