Venkateswaran Krishnan Sreenivasan Poems
Born To Die
Who said we are all born to die?
We are born to live and thrive
And to better this world, strive
By work and worship until we die
Look at the ills afflicting us
And try to improve the world around us
Learn the way from altruistic messiahs
Who toil all their life without fuss
Brood over this truth and worry
How short is human memory?
Forgetful of others' help in distress
Ungrateful for its timely redress
