Anger causes never healing wounds
There was a young man,
Who used to get angry,
Without any reason,
And extremely quite often.
His father gave him a hammer ,
And a bag full of nails ,
And told him , whenever you get angry,
Drive one nail in behind wall of our home.
First day he drove ten nails ,
Next day he drove five nails,
And next day he drove two nails,
And day by day it went on decreasing.
After a few days he d found that,
He has not driven any nail on the wall ,
And went and told his father ,
“So far forty five nails and from tomorrow none.”
Father told him , every day , you do not get angry ,
Pull out one nail from the wall please ,
And after forty five days were over,
He proudly shower his father the wall.
Father told him, true all nails are out,
But have you seen that there are ,
Forty five holes in that wall ,
Wounding that wall as long as it stands.
Similar to that , every time you are angry,
You wounded one person with your words.
And though you told that person that you are sorry,
The wounds that your words caused would not go away
Have you not heard the great poet in Tamil wrote,
The wounds caused by the fire would heal,
But those caused by words would never heal,
And so son, do not get angry and cause a wound.
