If you have had disappointments in life,
you have also been a casual witness
to some ingrate you thought was a friend;
he was helpless in the past;
treading on a thousand thorns as he walked,
and you gave him a coat like a father.
And did you help him when he was a beggar?
Wait, then, for the coming years:
If one day destiny raises him up
and you are overwhelmed by ill fate and bad luck,
this one that lacks a human heart
won't even look at you, his benefactor,
and if the world stings you with stones
He'll throw his stone at you right along with them!
