Childhood Is Better Than Old Age. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

I know my childhood and so I took care
Of my child first and then of my grandchild,
And paid debts due to my parents and theirs
Who did me all care, love and affection.

I know not the old age and I didn’t care
The need of my parents and their parents,
And left no debts due to me to be paid
By my children and their children in turn.

    philosophically moving with a morally important message, children have the freedom of innocence that adulthood misplaces for jaded perceptions, a wonderful read thank you very much! (Report) Reply
