An Act Of Kindness - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

One could
Simply turn
Into ashes
And vanish.

One could
One's own
Eye, kidney
Or heart
And let each
See, purify
Or beat
To breathe life
Into the living
And have life
After life.

An act of kindness
Can extend
All the way
To the end.

    So very true! Organ donation is perhaps the greatest act of kindness which can extend our life beyond the grave!
    A beautiful message conveyed through a simple poem!
