Pessimism of Birth by Lucretius

 

 

A Human Baby’s like a sailor washed up on a beach

   By the battering of the surf, naked, lacking the power

of  speech,

Possessing no mean of survival, when first Nature pours

Him forth with birth-pangs from his mother’s womb

upon Light’s shores.

He fills the room up with his sorrowful squalls, and

rightly so! –

Just think what lies in store for him, Life’s full supply of woe.
