FROM fairest creatures we desire increase,
That thereby beauty's rose might never die,
But as the riper should by time decease,
His tender heir might bear his memory:
But thou, contracted to thine own bright eyes,
Feed'st thy light'st flame with self-substantial fuel,
Making a famine where abundance lies,
Thyself thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel.
Thou that art now the world's fresh ornament
And only herald to the gaudy spring,
Within thine own bud buriest thy content
And, tender churl, makest waste in niggarding.
Pity the world, or else this glutton be,
To eat the world's due, by the grave and thee.

lets Translete it!!



We desire that all created things may grow more plentiful
So that nature's beauty may not die out
He leaves an heir to carry on his memory
But you, interested only in your own beauty
Feed the radiant light of life with self-regarding fuel
Making a void of beauty by so obsessing over your own looks
With this behavior you are being cruel to yourself.
You are now the newest ornament in the world, young and beautiful
And the chief messenger of spring,
But you are burying the gifts you have been given within yourself
And, dear one, because you deny others your beauty, you are actually wasting it.
I Take pity on the world, or else be regarded as a selfish glutton
By the laws of God and nature you must create a child, so that the grave does not devour the memory of your loveliness.


By Shakespere


Hopefully that was correct lol
