# # A Word's Power - Senryu

Rating: 5.0
who ever you are
you should hold your tongue if not
disgrace you welcome

[ yagavarayinum naakakka kavakkal
sogaapper soliluzhukku pattu]

a hurt from fire
heals from within...hurt by word
never ever heals

[theeyinal suttapun ullaarum
aarathai navinal sutta vadu]
