Exit with dignity – Anthony Sargeant April 2016

Standard

Exit with dignity

Death can be the release

from a lifetime

of misunderstanding

and miscommunication

when it is too late

and the days too few

to put things right.

 

To load oneself with stones

and walk into The Ouse

is to take control

to admit failure.

When to walk on

ever deeper into the chill waters

is an act of determination

if not courage.

 

To quietly wait for the cancer

to progress and consume is not:

That is the cowards way.
