Symbol Of Life - Poem by Ratnakar Mandlik

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.

    A child comes into the world weeping! He has to suffer the tortures of life till the end! Once he is out of the amniotic safety of his mother's womb, he has to swim across the shark infested waters....! That is life! You have briefly summed it up! (Report) Reply
