Twin Triplets. No.16


SUICIDE

When all is ill
And reason still
Impulse yells ‘kill’

EUTHANASIA

When life is woe
And the world says ‘go’
The grave beckons ‘come’

    A very good description of two of societies woes. In whichever way life
    ends no one is the winner. The cards are still stacked on the table to
    play the game all over again. Very thought provoking. (Report) Reply

    The difference is whether recovery is possible. If so, then it's suicide, if not then it's euthanasia. Thoughtful words. (Report) Reply

    Suicide is for the troubled and euthanasia is for the settled. Beautifully and succinctly expressed. (Report) Reply

    Hope the ill is not still for a moment and will pass, and hope woe of life is not grave. Your simple stanzas are deeply digging the mind. Beautifully presented. (Report) Reply

    If suicide is the antonym of murder, euthanasia is an action of mercy uncelebrated. (Report) Reply
