The Mistaken Beliefs - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

I mistook them to have got cured
From their not turning for check up.
I mistook them to have read mine
In the journals that they have read.
I mistook them as my lovers
As they valued my company.
Such like beliefs, still disproved,
Had nourished my ego through out..
