Intention To Help

An intention to help

a thought of kindness

could be misconstrued

as an indulgence uncalled

leaving the good heart

disillusioned and disappointed .


Go with an open hand

with an equally open heart

say the wise and experienced

easy to say than be done

sanguine be the face

yet the heart bleeds.


Kindness when  misunderstood

makes  one wary  and cautious

there goes the saying in Tamil

“பாத்திரம்  அறிந்து பிச்சைப் போடு”

know the situation and render help

an apt adage for philanthropy Good_Intentions_by_Scruggs
