Bear with patience
The multiplied troubles
Like a queen that endures the pain
Caused by her royal fetus.
How proud is she
She embraces the difficulties
She has no grudge
She knows she is carrying a future king.

At least your worries
Are here when you can handle
They won’t come strong
Catch you unaware, in another life.
So welcome the hardships
With awareness and right view
You are not a courtesan bearing a child
Unhappy…. Complaining….Full of hate.
