Actions Speak... - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

How hard I have tried,
To remove the hard stains,
On my heart and I have used,
The toughest stain remover,
Available in the market,
With the brand name,
Philanthropy and charity hem,
Santa clause attires,
Searching for the disinfectant,
To wipe out the germs,
That is fondly nourished,
Each minute of my life,
No hammer can kill it,
With the heavy blow to its head,
Only the toil of the body and mind,
May clear it and I may be absolved,
That is not guaranteed…

    If it stained in your heart, forgiving and let it go is the best works
    Silent will cure miserable noise of arguing, but it left echoes in ears
    While echoes in ears it will replayed in heart and send it to brain by blood
    but if it is a cloth..use detergent..physically remain? , the best one you do is to cover :) _Soul
