Desires Of A Person Who Has Not Much Of Wealth! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
If a person who has not much of wealth
…desires to monetarily help others, it is painful!
To live without enough wealth in a larger town
…with lots of houses of high raising balconies is painful!
To look at the faces of the inmates who had not invited you
…and eating in their house as and when they call and feed is painful!
The friendship of the friends who wash their hands
…and leave you while you are in distress is painful!

பொருளிலான் வேளாண்மை காமுறுத லின்னா
நெடுமாட நீணகர்க் கைத்தின்மை யின்னா
வருமனை பார்த்திருந் தூணின்னா வின்னா
கெடுமிடங் கைவிடுவார் நட்பு.36 - இன்னா நாற்பது
