The kid who held my suicide

On a fine morning,
I decided to end my life,
out of grief and failure;
I was walking in the sidewalk;
a kid,came near me and
started to walk with me;
I thought I would have the
kid as my last companion
so I didn't mind and asked, 
who are you kid?
he kept mum, 
he seemed a bit tough,
like the one's who mined 
in olden times;
I asked what if 
you fell down a hole?
I would stand up and walk, he said
what if the sky comes falling down?
won't you be afraid? I encountered;
I may be but I'll try to push 
it up, he squeaked with confidence;
intrigued I was, 
here I was, on the brink
of suicide, yet I'm witnessing 
courage and determination; so I ask-
what if someone comes and beats you up?
He simply claimed that he wont fall
to them;
when I asked who are you kid?
he replied with a smile and said
I'm who you are!
