When the newborn baby cries

The world isn’t despised.

The cry is a welcome gesture

That tries to suit itself

In a new world, for the just born.

When lives are lost,

And we realize

Too many have died

We are born anew

Like the newborn.

The cry of an infant

Isn’t it a choice to fit in?

The world isn’t an option

Only death ceases

The bare existence.

The scripting lessons

The hemlock of immortality

All make immortal arts.

The sky also weeps,

But the rain makes music.

Simplicity is the search

When you seek freedom.

The simple tears

Can teach you

The meaning for a smile.
