For A Happy Couple - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

When situations do not play out
As we would wish them to, we become
Critical, irritated and furious.
We curse and condemn from helplessness.

To curse or condemn wrongs is a refusal
To accept their reality; note.
Not to curse or condemn wrongs is not
That you condoned them and from weakness.

A dog's tail cannot be kept straightened.
Either accept it as a reality
And remain with it if you have to.
Thus spouses can be in harmony.
