Are We At Peace? - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

To learn running faster is the cheetah’s concern.
To learn running faster is the deer’s concern.
Their existences are linked to that feat.
They have no separate gods to rescue them.
Fear is the complex that cripples all lives.
We delude ourselves that we are at peace.
