Life or death?
Which shall it be?
I choose the latter, but let me
Open your eyes so you can see.

Life we live
So ordinarily,
Doing things for others
So vicariously

When really we should
Be relieved of all the pain.
Let death come
And make you sane.

Let him cme
And take your life
Whether it be by nature
Or perhaps a knife.

Though it may be painful
And all the more sad,
But then again it'll all be gone.
Won't you be glad?

Let him come
And grasp you in his arms.
All the pain will go,
So dont look alarmed

Now I have opened your eyes,
And shown you my way.
For life is a decision,
Not a scripted play.

Life or Death?
Which shall it be?
I choose the latter,
But you hold the key.

this is. so. stunning. in some ways its depressing, but in others its uplifting. i could explain it with adjectives like realistic, truthful, poignant, resonating. and theyd all be true.

a beautiful work, keep working :)
