Death And Survival, And Theories.... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

Those who struggle so hard
in order to live for a number of years more
are admirable

They fight their wars
and Just don't surrender that easily,

Those who want to end their lives
Finding it absurd
Those who hit their heads hard against the wall
and Bleed and die
Upon their own will
I say,
They too are admirable

They have guts.

Death is a state, but the door towards it
is painful. Those who embrace pain, contrary to norms,
must deserve our honor.
Theirs is that dignity to end their lives
at will.

Life is precious they say. It is a gift.

But life has no meaning sometimes.
One simply gets short of more reasons in order to continue the journey of sorrow and grief
and occasional joys of living.

One kicks hard against the storms.
The other stretches his hands to touch the sky.
Others let them be.

Those who are afraid, and non committal,
simply leave their lives in the hands of God.

They too have their own reasons,
They rest their destinies to Fate

or Faith,
And they too, must be admirable
or honorable.

I am this spectator still trying to fathom
the truth about this right or wrong.
