Two Years Maternity Leave - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

The more insecure one is
The more greedy and selfish
Or the more mean or possessive
One will be from one's childhood.

To feel secure, as a child
One must adequately be
Held, hugged and nestled
By its mother for two years.

Her palms on its head sooth it
And give a secure feeling,
Which determines its aptitude.
Grant a long maternity leave.
