Talk Not - Poem by Kalyani Rajalingham (Married to Dr. Kane)

By Kalyani Rajalingham

Boast not of virtues till you're amidst temptations

Till you've slaughtered vices and fought gravely with your soul

Talk not of pride till you've met those dignified souls

Till you've faced foes like friends who have hoofs and horns

Talk not of strength till your heart has been carved

With moments of misery by knives of valour

Speak not of love until sacrifice has been known

Till understanding and passion have both been captured and merged as one

Adorn not in riches till those are ardently yours to stay

For, heights are easy to reach,

But hard are they to preserve,

And he who holds these lasting treasures to his chest

Is the world's greatest need

And the greatest gift
