The Real Birth - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

The leaf has a birth; so does the flower.
The seed has a birth; so does the seedling.
The egg has a birth; so does a larva.
The fly has a birth; so does a pupa.

Gametes have birth; zygotes have birth.
The embryo and the young ones have births.
Even each cell and the nucleus have births.
Species, genus and families have their births.

Birth is a stage distinct in the life string
Like a day as a new year in a year.
No birth is exclusive but protruding.
The origin of life is the real birth.
