Happiness Needs Not These. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

The one who seeks no success,
No position and no followers,
Is holier than the holy men.

The one who is anonymous,
Unambitious and unimportant
Is richer than the clergy men.

What if we have no ambition?
What if we have no importance?
What if we have no followers?
We can live with happiness.
