Interest Lies In Doing - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

You can run but will not do it for long.
You can jump but will not stand firm.
Can over power but fail to empower.
Ergo, stroll. You can feel the steps.
Stand. You can feel the earth.
Be receptive to the beauty of environs.
The interest is in doing, not in getting.
The pursuit, albeit unending, is worth the game.
