    When I was younger, anger made me feel stronger.
    With wisdom growing faster, I know, I was weaker.
    When I was smaller, at everything I would thunder.
    Now that I am elder, before every anger, I will surrender.
    When the hairs on my scalp is growing greyer.
    When comes in me an anger, I will sit calmly and ponder.
    Life now is sublime and happier without any anger.
    Where has it gone permanently, I often wonder.
    Dr. Ramesh R Naik.
