A Beggar I Am. Poem by Rm. Shanmugam Chettiar

A Beggar I Am.

Rating: 4.6

I show my fake smiles
To those I seek,
To those I cling to
To those I fear
And to those I trap.
Aren’t I a beggar?

No you are not a begger. Enriched and eloquent in thoughts.

pretence prevails...when the soul is lost n unhappy...strenghten the soul...to b one with god n all.... true happiness reflects a smiling heart thru eyes, , lips do the speaking good...n spends hrz in praying

Beautiful, I know those fake smiles, seems they have been around for centuries.But now people do not even attempt to fake a smile, seems a sad world at times.Very lovely
