Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


Few Hard Things


Lyrics without substance
House without harmony
Hard to digest hard to adjust!

An army without training
Flower without fragrance
Hard to succeed hard to cherish!

People without character
Friendship without trust
Hard to mingle hard to survive!

Education without discipline
Faith without following
Hard to honor hard to flourish!
