Thoughts On Euthanasia


Life carries on
Their bodies and mind wane
As the disease sets
Their bodies and mind strain

A slow death
Of body and mind
Sadness and depression
And memories left behind

No where to turn
A death pact is made
She goes before him
A last act of love and trade

Lying bare
Forwarding death
Her body gasps
One last breath

Watching the other go
Tears are shed
Two minutes later
They'll both be dead

Their last years
Even more chilling
Before the pact
The mercy killing

    A really chilling poem concerning life and death. The brevity coupled up with morbid words make up a great combination. Cheers :)) (Report) Reply

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?

But mark the fate of faces;
