Who determines the final moment--He or man?
|ABOUT SUICIDE—a sonnet
Shall I leave my departure to my fate?
Or, shall I take decision on my own
To end my life and leave the earthly gate
When I feel that tired of life, I have grown?
Poor me! Why should such thoughts bother me so?
When my time comes, I won’t have a moment
Either to decide if to stay or go
Or to, my own decision, implement.
When man has no power to avert death,
He can’t have power to induce it, too.
Death is predestined by the Architect
Who sent all of us to earth, me and you.
So, better give up all thought of suicide.
We must always by Him only abide.
* Written as Shakespearean sonnet.
