Treasure Island

Ratnakar Mandlik

(Aug.29,1950 / Hyderabad(A.P.) , India)

Symbol Of Life


The weeping of a child
Every newly borned
Is a symbol showing
A life newly formed.
The life to be cut,
By knives to it unknown.
These are the duties
And stark realities,
Which the child must
Follow till he mingles with dust.
