A short poem...

Dukkha -

First life of new-born
The animated angst of its presence
Reaching, grasping, crying
The throes of the dead from all before
Maturing into cleverness
Hiding in the intellect
The many forms of throe

* Dukkha is one the Three Marks of Existence in the Buddhist teachings translated as suffering or unsatisfactoriness in its various intensities.
