How Much More Tears?

You cry when you are born.
Because returning painfully is suffering.
How much more tears?

You cry when you are here.
Because living unhappily is suffering.
How much more tears?

You cry when you are dying.
Because leaving fearfully is suffering.
How much more tears?

(The irony?
Your parents smile when you are born,
just as you do when your children are born.)
