Enhance Your Life - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Rich should be
Your ideas
Rich should be
Your thoughts
We make here an attempt
To state some basic steps
With a sincere hope that
They enrich your life a bit.

Acquire wealth
There's nothing wrong
But don't be possessed
By all the wealth's power
Be content to live
A comfortable life
And what you can spare
Do share with the needy.

Gain more knowledge
As much as you can
From books and teachers
From those young and old
From successes and failures
From all walks of life
Share it with those lacking
To multiply it even further.

In doing all of the above
Never neglect your health
Be always relaxed
And have a cool mind
Solve all the problems
Keeping human values
Follow all the steps
And enhance your life.
