Euthanasia [Thursday Poet’s rally week 35]

A relief from pain,

An escape from suffering,

An end to life,

A way to peace,

A desire so irresistible,

A path the law does not heed,

For those in agony,

This is what on daily they feed,

It’s euthanasia!-  they feel they need.

  15. Difficult issue. As a hospice nurse, I’m a proponent of symptom management rather than euthanasia, but no one should be allowed to experience intractable pain. We have a lot of ways to manage it now.

    my rally:

  16. Very well explained..
    Euthanasia is definitely they feel they need…
    I love your poem 🙂

  17. Nice one keep it up 🙂

  18. Euthanasia is the last thing I would do 🙂 No just kidding, am all for it and liked this poem very much 🙂

  19. I have a friend who just went through the legal work allowing her father to die. He was suffering so much, and by helping him to die, she gave him the greatest gift. This is beautiful.

  20. Totally agree.
    Simply amazing

  21. An interesting subject for a poem. I worked in the healthcare industry for 30 years always believing that euthanasia was valid. I am no longer so sure. Thanks for this thought provoking poem.

    Thanks for visiting me, too. pat

  22. oh sweet release

  23. orange

    Loved it… especially loved the way you got to the heart of an ‘issue’ and weaved the emotions into this poem..

  24. Glory

    This made me cry. It’s so sad when a life needs to end to stop the pain where life began.

  25. Thank you for sharing this. It is intense.

  26. Serious topic. Well put together!

  27. This is such a sensitive topic to write about. Being a medical student, I am very much pro-life, but sometimes it is necessary to end a life to end sufferings. I liked the way you wrote this. I am nominating you for this week’s rally. 🙂

  28. Simple and so true.

  29. very controversial, yet important subject. thanks for touching on it with such talent.
