When Dying Was Not A Choice

animals die in faraway places not to be seen ...

When animal dies, it either die alone & lonely or die with their flocks
Carps die after spawning, female praying mantis eats up their male during mating
Elderly eagles break their beaks to strengthen and maintain their sharpness as they aged
Lion rules the jungle but when aged, even the hyenas dominate and eat it as meal

Loneliness is the ultimate poverty - Pauline Philips

The hospice caters to the terminally ill who knew their time is limited and seek a painless delivery
Their pains, irritations & sufferings cannot be quantified nor easily relieved
Living may not be a choice but must be dignified
Their will to live is, more often than not, their Faiths in GOD

The rich but sickly has no use for money; you cannot pay someone to suffer your illness
The dead poor is not nearly dead but must struggle to find his next meal
The young trades his health for money while the elders use his wealth to 'buy' health
When sickness hit, dying is never a choice however terminal

Parents struggle to bring up kids and when kids are grown-ups, it's an empty-nest syndrome
In this moneyed world, without money, little to nothing can be done 有钱不是万能 但无钱万万不能
When you are old, immobile, sick and penniless and help is not available, dying is a choice not readily available
The need to survive is all the more demanding and trying

Are the old really insignificant and discardable? They are not digits in statistics
To the successful people who disowned and discard their parents, your Karma isn't far
Nobody wants to be sick and dependent 生老病死 ~ The Laws of Nature dictates
Spare a thought for the aged & unwell; dying is not a choice

When death comes a-calling, there must be dignity
No one should die unwanted, alone in the wild & with death as a choice
Euthanasia ~ should be available for those who suffers overwhelming pains and scourge
A dignified exit is what every man deserves without having to make a choice

If you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it's not because they enjoy solitude. It's because they have tried to blend into the world before and people continue to disappoint them - Jodi Picoult
