Basic Truth


I am not sure and I am in doubt
Whether this child would grow or not
Whether this child would get educated or not
Whether this child would get married or not
Whether this child have a family or not
Whether this child have wealth or not
But I am sure this child will die
You will die and there is no doubt
In death as because this child has already
Taken birth you have already taken birth
Let me say again there is no need to
Celebrate birth day that you have reached
Certain age because I know you have not
Reached that age but so many years have gone
And you are short of so many years and
You are getting closer to death and so
It is better if you celebrate the welcoming
Ceremony of death here every year every moment
I am sure it would give new and true energy for
An ideal living.
