To Dominate Is Of Every One. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

To dominate is a part of life
Like water that flows down the slope.
To resist is the first reaction
Like grass that filters the flow.
To cushion is the adjustment
Like sand that absorbs the force.
To give way is the last way
Like land that erodes to let it go.
It exists in all forms among all.
No hue and cry is of any avail.
