(This poem is not necessarily my viewpoint;
primarily written to present a specific perspective)
Suicide of any kind is no crime,
just don't ask one to hold your hand for a time.
Refusing the painfully ill a means
from a place of compassionate and noble team.
A "good death" justified for the 'right to die';
relinquishing unbearable suffering, a limited existance,
Allowing a patient to choose their distance.
Our laws are confusing to me...
allowing abortion, and unprecedented suicide,
but not the right to die with dignity and pride?
It's all right to leave this earth,
before an infant has a chance at birth,
to suffocate or to have meaningless suffering;
our government...who do they think they're buffering?
This subject mentioned in discreet silence-useless remarks,
few, who have raised sparks...
gained the attention even with care and discretion,
of this so called dishonorable mention.
There is no conflict between quality of life
and conscious decisions due to strife.
Giving one the option-a caring society,
with the accompaniment of your selected deity.
From a God who is loving and kind,
understanding and forgiving, does He mind?
All our life He gave us choice-
why now-can't we exit with poise?
..."to thine own self be true."
