Sufferings With No Escape - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A child has no alternative.
If it's to suffer at the hand
Of its parents, it has to.
An old man has no alternative.
If he's to suffer at the hand
Of his caretaker, he has to.
The sufferings that occur
Without any alternatives
Would increase fear and pain higher.
