Help Others! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Nothing is so sad and sorrowful than death!

But even death is sometimes pleasant and better
while one is unable to help and offer to the poor
in need and distress!

A friend in need is a friend indeed,
But a person who helps the poor in need
is similar to God! Help others!
