Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Greed and fear. I


You enter with greed;
You exit with fear.
You love with greed;
You fail with fear.
But
You are born with fear
And will die with greed.
Greed is the drive;
Fear is the break.

Drive ahead, minding the head.
