Lies In Your Own Hands! - Poem by V.Muthu Manickam

Your neighbor can’t vend
Nor your family can lend

Your loved one can’t donate
Or your enemy can’t pirate

None can offer
Even authority can’t confer

No field shall supply
No shop shall apply

It is not sold with sounds
Nor in terms of pounds

You have to develop it day and night
Using your own might

Your personal image, lies in your own hand!
And becomes your own brand! !

Above poem is adapted from the eBook “INSIDE LIGHT GUIDES! OUTSIDE LIGHT HIDES! ! AND OTHER POEMS ON PHILOSOPHY ” by Mr.V.Muthu manickam. Copyright is held by V.Muthu manickam.
