Empathy Is Pillars - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

If someone has been hostile to us
We brood on it and repay it to him.
If someone has made us victims
We take it to make others victims.
If someone has been beneficent,
We get no adequate drive to repay it.
If someone has helped us in distress
We don’t go forward to help others.
Sword for sword but not bread for bread;
Such trend grows at the cost of empathy.
Unless parents become role models
And put a check, the pillars will crack.
