A Man’s Tendency - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Man, you might be richer with wealth
But I am neither poorer,
With my bowl content with contents.
Man, you might be stronger with power
But I am neither weaker,
With my sac’s wants empty.
Why must I fall behind you?

Woman, you might be poorer in looks
I am not richer either
With my kit of virtues torn.
Woman, you are weaker in virtues
I am not richer either
With my bag of conscience worn.
That is why I fall behind you.

    The poem suggests that the moral virtues that we accumulate in our spirit are more valuable than earnings, that are material for the body. Moral virtues should give the poor the right to stay ahead of the rich in material, but poor in virtues 10++ (Report) Reply
