Reward-Less Acts - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Too timid to say ‘no',
If you says to one ‘yes'
The yes carries no value
And adds to you no value.

With no alternative,
If you agree to one's bid
Your agreeing has no value
And adds to you no value.

No longer in need of it,
If you spare it to one,
It fetches you no gratitude
Nor put you any high.
