They termed him the "rebel"
Never the Teacher's pet!
He was what they all called, "Difficult"
There was something in him,
which made him the rule breaker!
Some called it arrogance,
some other, dis-regard!
He was not called obedient..
It didn't bother him
ANd so he remained the exception!
Till one day, some considerate soul,
walked up to him...
what understanding came upon that stranger,
no one knew....
But that considerate soul,
just gave him a reason,
for each and every rule there was!
And in so doing,
didn't use authority to make him a rule-follower
but allowed him freedom
and let his reasoning rule....
Then on, he followed every rule there was!!
