Power And Desire - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Power and desire e

Power will not retreat
Until another one
Comes to overcome it.

Desire does not subside
Until another one
Has set to replace it.

One’s power and desire
Can’t be dispensed with
In one’s life time, a fact.

Power will not retreat
Until another one
Comes to overcome it.

Desire does not subside
Until another one
Has set to replace it.

One’s power and desire
Can’t be dispensed with
In one’s life time, a fact.

    desire and need for power- can't be dispensed with- thought provoking. even salvation is a desire.
