Tis Life

Tis life

Tis life to question death
For death to question life
For life to have pain
And death to end the strife

So why would someone kill themselves?
Is simple they know of life’s fear
As death has a promise of sudden peace
With an outcome never quite clear

Now lets look at the subject
They say all life has equality
Yet the value of some is “higher”
When you mix in the idea of quality

A judgement people ignore
For if a person’s life is pain
Verse a life of endless pleasure
It seems death is very sane

For who wants to live in pain?
Or the endless feeling of longing
When life itself is mundane
Or that of constant flogging

Don’t look down on those who take that step
For you have no right to judge their choice
Who could say you wouldn’t have slept
If stuck living in with thier silent voice.

    Exellent poem.. I totally agree.. nobody has the right to judge another.. know one can know another’s reality or live and feel it… Every soul has the right to walk their own lifepath and make their own choices…
    People judge what they fear and don’t understand in general though.. like the frightened animal attacks… A poem such as yours.. gives insight into this perspective and highlights another aspect of the judgemental society we reside in today…

    so so true, particularly the second stanza…it is a welcoming end at times, particularly if you’re misunderstood. If in life one can’t share much with anyone and can’t be understood by one it really is not worth living…an unclear end is much welcomed.

    I am so glad to see someone finally write about this topic. I can relate to this poem on many levels. I would say to post this on other sites it will make people feel more free about themselves. Nobody knows what people go through and what kind of life they have lived and what kind of pain they are suffering within their self. Everybody at one point of time has demons and sometimes they do not go away..
