A king by name Narcissus
Visited the lake everyday
A peek at his reflection
Made him jump in gay
Called himself the most handsome
Lying at the bay
A deeper look into the water
 In the abyss he lay
There came the forest fairy to remove all fears
Salt turns the lake filled with tears
Oh lake, don't you miss the favorite guest
Handsome was he, with his unquenched thirst
Wonders the lake and says Oh dear !!
Happy was i to have his eye as my mirror.

This was a short story told by Paulo Coelho as a fable in his own way.
I rewrote it with the words flowing in my mind today.

How surprisingly truthful is this. Ignore, Disagree, Contemplate, come what may, this is present in each and every human being. At one or the other point of life,  we try to see ourselves in others around us, sometimes we search, sometimes we complain, but truth lies in this story simple and plain.
