Woman Only Deserts - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

‘I cannot give you up, my beloved.
If I did it would eat my heart.’
With this burdening my heart I left you.
On my return, I was led to believe
That you have chosen to give up me.
Therefore, I feel no pain to give up you.

‘Man cannot give woman up
until she chooses to give up him’
