Leave Alone The Vices And Do Virtuous Deeds Only! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Virtues make you to flourish;
vices lead to destruction;
The virtues and vices done
in the previous birth by you

Are the reserved things for those
who are born in this earth
Either to enjoy the pleasures
or to suffer the hardships
in this birth!

If you think wisely,
it is nothing but this fact
said by all religions what may be,
Hence, leave alone the vices
And do virtuous deeds only!

Topic(s) of this poem: virtue

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'Leave alone the vices and do virtuous deeds only! ' is a translation by me of a poem from Tamil literature 'Nalvazhi' by Poetess Avvaiyaar.

புண்ணியம்ஆம் பாவம்போம் போனநாட் செய்தஅவை
மண்ணில் பிறந்தார்க்கு வைத்தபொருள் - எண்ணுங்கால்
ஈதொழிய வேறில்லை எச்சமயத் தோர்சொல்லுந்
தீதொழிய நன்மை செயல்.1 - நல்வழி

    Basically every human being is a mixture of vices and virtues. One has to perform penance in the form of determination and consistent efforts to leave vices and develop virtues to reap rewards of a blissful life.
    An excellent poem. Thanks for sharing.10 points.
