Welcome Euthanasia

Welcome Euthanasia

He sleeps now soundlessly
silently,
half breathing

Relatives watch over him calmly
having been given a verdict
Euthanasia has been welcomed
with passion

still he breathes
how long will such a one
prolong pain and grief
relatives become sleepless
in pain he sinks
Deep

Some day the passive way too
will lead to active
let us be kindly treated
like dogs and horses
are put to sleep
let us feel our human selves
a bit better than them
more dignified
Amen

One from your thoughts that is one of those we wait for.
Euthanasia, then Soyulant Green, is there yet biscuits for tea dear.
We have just gone over to the point that you must say if you forbid any of your parts being used to save others when you die, I suppose what's left over can be used for something..
Loved this write it shows me that the title Young Bard is still OK,

I personally feel like if a person who is suffering with a terminal illness want to die then it's their own choice.......stan

my knees are well
may be some one could use these
when there is for me left no need

This poem is an outcome
of a real happening in my life
like MOM'S SMILES
this is my second true one
AND
My, glad I am that it has been liked
by IAN and you
great poetic SEERS
contemporary peers

Another PILLAR of Time
has just set with the last sun
hope we will remember him
yes we will
''STEPHEN HAWKINS'' lives in SCIENTIFIC HEARTS still ...

Simple and elegant.

It treats gently and commonplacedly a topic that is too often approached with strident moralising.

cheers,
