The Stallion And The Mare - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Man seeks woman's hand
For her beauty or wallet.
Few men woman's hand
For her valour or command.
Man seeks woman's hand
For her virtues or arts.
Few men seek woman's hand
For her glamour or sports.
A stallion wants a mare
Not as fast as he is in run.

    The power of external beauty often is stronger than the power of inner beauty. But that is only superficially so. In the end if happiness is what counts, the power of inner beauty surpasses all. (Report) Reply

    Mostly Man seek woman mostly for her beauty, not at all for the brain, because most of them want the submissive wife who is obedient and this scenario is seen mostly in India, but in countries, where women are forced to work mostly in developed countries, man have lost their voice. At last woman silenced them and the man made it possible.. Thank you guys............. (Report) Reply
