Let Everyone Must Do The Virtues Without Delay! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

It is foolishness to be in glee that the lightning
..like youth will remain for ever and considering
that I will do the virtuous deeds in old age!

Death god might come closer even in the younger age;
..Hence the men must even by straining themselves,
Let everyone must do the virtues without delay!
