The Inability - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

I’m tolerant to the strong.
I forgive the mighty.
I submit to the power.
Inability only makes me good.

    Verily, inability makes man feel inferior,
    and he behaves humbly,
    but being humble only to the strong is a sin,

    The poet conveys the message to be humble
    towards one and all.

    A lovely poem indeed,
    Loved reading and commenting,
