What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

A pleasing gentleman Is the one who is liked for ever!

A person who is said to be eating pleasant food
is the one who eats without killing any life for food,
but the one who eats only vegetarian food!

A person who is said to be a hated personality
Is the one who lives with loss of cheers in his face really,
but the one who behaves with others snappishly!

A person who is said to be lonely without companion
Is the one who has not done anything good to anyone,
but the one who was idle, without helping tendency!

A person who is said to be a pleasing gentleman
Is the one who is not hated by any body whomsoever,
But the one who is a well disciplined person, liked for ever!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'A pleasing gentleman Is the one who is liked for ever! ' is a translation of a poem from Tamil literature 'NaanmaNik katikai'

இனிது உண்பான் என்பான் உயிர் கொல்லாது உண்பான்;

முனிதக்கான் என்பான் முகன் ஒழிந்து வாழ்வான்;

தனியன் எனப்படுவான் செய்த நன்று இல்லான்;

இனியன் எனப்படுவான் யார் யார்க்கேயானும்

முனியா ஒழுக்கத்தவன்.59
