A Person Who Doesn’t Earn Sufficient Wealth In Due Time! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

A person who doesn’t earn sufficient wealth
…in due time when he is physically young and fit
that keeps the mind clean and satisfactory,

He is at par with a blind shepherd selecting the long
…dark pathless forest into which he plans to make
the herd to graze for food; thereby he can’t return!

Hence, as a matter of fact that person does not deserve;
…he will not desire to undertake any virtuous activities;
He is the person hated by the assembly of men around!

He provides himself a place for all venomous character;
…He is such a person with nature of mean mentality;
And he is not liked and respected by anybody!

குருட்டாய னீள்கானங் கோடல் சிவணத்
தெருட்டாயங் காலத்தாற்சேரான் - பொருட்டாகான்

பொல்லாங் குறைவிடமாம் புல்.15 – இன்னிலை

    Sufficient (wealth) is a relative concept. It is true that old age people are not liked by any one if they are not financially independent. Realistic write. Enjoyed the poem. Thanks for sharing.10+
