Haiku: Four Factors of a Buddhist being

BIRTH

“Blessed is the womb’s fruit”
As you spring into the air
Years ahead of you

SUFFERING
Pain and agony
Always stab your inner self
Why does life hold this?

AGEING
Years your life passes
Your strong mind and soul grows weak
No revival here

DEATH
The heart stops beating;
Your corpse truly invades you
Invasion of death.
