Will Not Your Life Be So Sweet Like Sugarcane? - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Console yourself after seeing the person
who does not have his two legs intact!

Don’t get your eyes stirred up that
You don’t have suitable footwear!

In this world, think how many people
are there inferior to you with no comfort!

Now will not your life be
so sweet like sugarcane?


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'Will not your life be so sweet like sugarcane? ' is a translation of a Tamil poem by Poet VenpaavUr Sundaram.

கால்இரண்டும் இல்லானைக் கண்டுதெளி, நீயணிய
காலணி இல்லையென்று கண்கலங்கேல்! ஞாலமதில்
உன்னிலும்கீழ் எத்தனைபேர் ஓர்ந்திடுக, ஆகாதோ
கன்னலென நின்றன்வாழ்க் கை? - வெண்பாவூர் சுந்தரம்
