Rare be thine human birth,
Waste it not in vain mirth,
Like brown leaf fall ye would,
Think; change thine attitude.

    Existence is a gift.
    We shall enjoy its wonders.
    Live life to the fullest and contribute positive works
    for the enhancement of humanity.
    Another wonderful poem from a great Poet
    translated and conveyed brilliantly by an equally great man and Poet.

    Thank you very much RMJA,
    A man put on a tall pedestal,
    Greater chances has from it to fall.
