Good Feelings - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

It pains me most
When man cheats or
Physically or mentally
Hurts a fellow man.

Man's desire to expand
And cling to absolute power
Are obstacles to bringing
Peace and order in the world.

One must feel successful
When others around do so
One must work hard
To make others succeed.

Even the need for
Self defense shouldn't
Arise when man acts
Like a man should.

When one leaves the world
What'll the soul ever need?
It's only while here this moment
It matters to have good feelings.
