Sailing Through - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

We wait for splendid moments
So as to be ebullient.
We encapsulate ideal
Future to reach happiness.
External reality
Hardly fulfill happiness.
The wealthy style of living
Impair ability to enjoy.
Be your life a boat journey,
Where sailing through is a joy.

    The wealthy style of living
    Impairs ability to enjoy.
    Be your life a boat journey
    Where sailing through is joy.
