Ups and long...many a times suicide attempts...what it leads to is.. these few words in verse..

A Woman's looks

at tenterhooks

caught by art

winning the heart

as is they speak

their jolly  break.


though much to learn

and to try

but days she slides, by passing 'Hi'

to him or to her

it floats akin

saves her a trip to Doctor Spin.


Dreams lost

somewhere maybe...


With hopes laid on euthanasia

she lives to be..

I believe it is up to the individual to decide something like this.

Love ya!

You express a theme that is of timeless and universal importance, Neerja. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

kind and compassionate if pain is too much
and quality gone; a sensitive subject, Neerja,
you treat with calmness and maturity

even though we should never seek nor avoid death, if one is in agony the choice should be theirs ....

Dearest Neerja, Perhaps euthanasia not for all,
but for least...the possibility for them
to decide, we are not the ones to sit in judgement,
only God can do that....

Neerja I find the last four lines here so disturbing… possibly what draws me to this write. After 30 years in the medical field I know euthanasia is not a new concept but it forever stirs a twinge.

Attempted suicide? That's a fools game played by too many tormented souls. Euthanasia? That is an appropriate and kind way to die, especially if hospice is available, too. I will not go the way of my father who spent four months in agony while they tried to keep him alive past 85 with bad bacteria wracking his body over and over again. Overdoses of antibiotics could not and did not save him.

I am a firm believer in euthanasia, but at the same time, there is much fear that it can, and probably does, be abused.
