Eyes Cannot See The Time. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Birth is not at will; so is death.
Next moment is not in one’s hand.
Hopes and fears are inter-twined.
Faiths and beliefs are promises.
Fortune ridden, accidents prone,
Success is not his; nor is failure.
Life is a straw that drifts along,
With eyes that can see things ahead
But have no power to see the time ahead.
