The Tragedy and the Chance

Striving for joy is an endless striving.
Lamenting for peace brings endless lament.
Grasping for love becomes endless grasping.
So, the tragedy of life finds no end.

Who can escape from the misery of:
Grasping, lamenting, and striving onward?
All who flee death, lose their life from the start.
The Noble learn this, and take it to heart.
