As Long As...

  As long as
I remain an
Asset to you
You can
Enjoy me

But if I ever
Become a
Liability...
You can
Dispose of me

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

If I ever fall
Gravely ill,
Please don't
Strain yourself
Caring for me

Instead
Be very
Courageous
And release me

How?

By snuffing the life out of me
_________________________


(based on Euthanasia or mercy killing, this poem is addressed to my near 'n' dear ones, my loved ones....If I ever have a debilitating, incurable illness, I would rather prefer to die ASAP than prolong my suffering and prolong the suffering of my carers as I very well know how hard a carer's life can be....and I would not like my family to go thru the ordeal of caring for me esp. when it comes to palliative care for terminal illness)
