Foolish People Sayings - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

people have often told me
people keep telling me
how 'what does not kill
you makes you stronger'

an observant
rational mind
must disagree...

view stark naked evidence
observe what does not kill
you can leave you maimed
crippled broken the crippled

in great pain left with shattered
broken bodies beg for death
sometimes?

the crippled in great pain left
with shattered broken minds
crave beg death sometimes?
both body and mind broken
sometimes self suicides!

are people
begging for death
more entitled
more qualified

more justified
candidates
for euthanasia
than people

trapped
locked
in a persistent

hopeless
vegetable
state?

sticks and stones
can break bones
but names
can never hurt...

me is wrong bones
can break heal leaving
no permanent scares
names can scare minds...

delicate constantly bullied
victims for life

what does not kill
you can leave you maimed
or a wasted bleeding
heap bitter to life?

live doing no wrong
to no one do no wrong
do no wrong to no one

is an enlightened
humanitarian
goal our ultimate

inspired dream hoped
for eventual world
future coming heritage!
