To Give, And To Get, Birth - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Is giving a birth unloading or bearing?
Is getting a birth gaining or suffering?
A child would forgo receiving kisses
If each kiss is followed by a pinch.
A lad would refrain from kissing his girl
If each kiss is rewarded with a slap.
One might want to avoid giving birth,
For the burden that comes from happiness.
One might want to escape getting rebirth
For the suffering that comes from happiness.
Lust for sex is a bait to get young ones.
Births withheld, baits are chewed, for fear of pain.
The drive for procreation is dying.
To be free of rebirth can be achieved.
