Reason, Stop Killings

Rating: 4.7
If you can take life
Then takeyours alone
You have no right
Taking others along
You are not permitted
Taking even yours
So why others
Since is only murder
Don't be deceived
Stop the killings
Decide not to be devilish
But different in dignity
Reason
Stop the killings

Killing is senseless! And the greatest crime against God! Excellent succinct poem about the extremes of dictatorship. Congratulations, Ehimika on deservedly being granted Poem Of The Day.

You are not permitted Taking even yours So why others/// excellent; yes, no rights to kill others even thyself; suicide is not the perfect solution of all as well as killing others is not the true justice even the wickeds; if have to kill the wickeds then give them opportunity to say publicly who made them wicked; great thoughtful poem penned; congrats for being selected this poem as POD......from me 5*******
