To Mourn The Death? - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Leaving home for school is a death.
Leaving school for service is a death.
Retiring from service is a death.
Every parting is a death.
Every meeting is a birth
Every death leads you to a birth.
Every birth leads thus to a death.
As many entrances as there are exits,
Till the arrival of corporal death,
Beyond which we have no evidence

    very insightful and well-written - and the ending is so characteristically true... (Report) Reply
