# # Sad - Poem by Samanyan Lakshminarayanan

man grows old too soon
even when the whole world
stands there afresh to remind him
of a birth
every day
every minute
every second
as a new birth
sad indeed....
man grows old too soon

    It's a sad fact, Sam...a cycle of be born, live, die...a new life begins for someone and will experience the same fate. So it's important for us to enjoy our life as we all know it will end up soon. Sensible write! :) (Report) Reply
