Divergent Certainties.....!!!!

Birth and death
Contrasting realities they are
One is joy
One is sadness
There is pain in birth
There is pain in death

Who is born, who dies
When, where and how?
None can predict
This happens to all
None can escape its clutches
Each passes the stage
Each born must die

Tears of sorrow in death
Tears of happiness in birth
One who dies is gone
Rest pine for him
One who is born comes
Rest gather to be near him

Celebration of joy
Celebration of new things
Celebration of happiness
Celebration of life
Celebration of beauty
All accumulate in birth
Celebration and laughter

Tears of sorrow
Tears of separation
Tears of frustration
Tears of agony
Tears of culmination
Flow freely in death
Tears and only tears

Birth and death
Contrasting realities they are.....

Hey I must say, its intense..

Who is born, who dies
When, where and how?
None can predict
This happens to all
None can escape its clutches
Each passes the stage
