Kannadasa Dasan writes
WRITE THE RIGHT
We have invented digital watches
But do we know to use the time?
We have prepared many foods
But do we know to unite and dine?
We have different types of pens
But we're afraid to write the right!
We have various colours of lamps
But do we know where to light?
We often travel around the world
But do we know our neighbor's name?
We used to say Lord Buddha’s word
But we don’t have any good aim!
We care for the bar and the car
But we give nothing to the poor!
Good songs and music we hear
But a poor man’s cry we don’t hear!
We search for the gold all around
But do we know our mother's worth?
We speak as if we are god’s friend
But very rarely we speak the truth!
