Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Non rebirth is not God’s wish.


Not to die till I die is my goal.
To compete for food, sex and shelter
Is the struggles that give anxieties
Rather than pleasantness in one’s life.

Be him rich or poor, he is filled with
Sufferings that encompass happiness,
Pains that eclipse pleasure and losses
That pester him despite gains in store.

Rebirth is not worth seeking in life.
Resenting rebirth is in the card.
I am in tune with all religions
That advocate for seeking no rebirth.

Getting rid of rebirth is the bliss.
If it’s so, the best way for one to stop
The rebirth is stop reproductions,
Giving no birth. Is it God’s wishes?

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
