Defeated, A Man Sat Down By Vinod Kumar Shukl

Defeated, a man sat down
A man, I did not know
Defeat, I knew
So I went to this man
And offered my hand
He took my hand to stand
He did not know me
He knew an offered hand
We both walked together
We did not know each other
We did know walking together


My translation of a Hindi poem found online through 
Manav Kaul reading it on YouTube, tearing me up.
