Mercy Killing (Euthanasia) - Poem by Billy Simani

What happened last night brother,
Please tell me it's not true,
Was i a bother,
Don't tell me you have no clue,

Why am i locked up in an asylum,
Don't you trust me,
Am i getting my mammogram,
it's my right to know please tell me,

Don't isolate me please,
I beg you, am only human,
Tell them to handle me with ease,
Am almost a young woman,

Don't turn away when i speak,
I need some answers,
These injections are making me weak,
Not forgetting my ulcers,

Is this about the mercy killing,
Please brother, don't cry,
You tried your best but am not healing,
Please let me die,

I can's feel my limbs,
The medicine is getting stronger,
Please take care of the other siblings,
Am growing weaker,

Am done leaving on life support machine,
Just let me go,
You tried but am a broken engine,
lease let my spirit go,

This are my last words brother,
Please don't try and save me,
Last night when i had a seizure,
The doctor defiled me...,
