great poem. the question calls for some thought. its the best you've got. the best you can give. and there are great rewards for the one who sacrifices his life for his creator. 10+

Great thinking, neither blood nor the flesh reaches Almighty, only what roaches is your intention...

Life is His gift to us, suffering is part and parcel, one should not get dishearten for good or bad. Just live upright, you will be held for your good and bad deeds.
