E is for Euthanasia

Euthanasia: the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma.

WHO can help me please?
WANTS and regrets haunt me still.
TO me, Devil came:

«REALLY, do you agree?
LIVE eternally with me
FOREVER as slave.»

I, a succubus?
MIGHT I skip euthanasia?
THINK I´ll pass, thank you.

ABOUT that offer…
IT sounds quite exciting now.
LATER I´ll regret.

Senryu 5 of 26 I´ll be doing this april to participate in #AtoZChallenge, #NaPoWriMo and #CampNaNoWriMo. Did you like it? Don´t be shy, leave a comment. I´d love if you add a blog hop so I can visit your post, too.

This is my Spanish haiku counterpart: E de Eutanasia. Why, do you ask? My wonderful crew, #NaNoTribuMX started a micro stories challenge in Spanish this month. (We´re still voting the words we will use this month).

The team’s theme of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge this year is:
ACCOMPLISHING YOUR DREAMS, AND THE DUALITY OF 22; to see all cool bloggers participating this challenge, you can click on the Master List of #AtoZChallenge.

Today’s NaPoWriMo‘s prompt: to write a variation of an acrostic poem. But rather than spelling out a word with the first letters of each line, I’d like you to write a poem that reproduces a phrase with the first words of each line.

If you are participating on these challenges, I wish you good luck and lots of success. 😀

  1. To me euthanasia is not right. Death is a part of life and I think we should be given what has been dealt to us. I’m not a fan of pain, but maybe it’s a test that we are meant to endure. But it’s a tough call if we’re not the ones dealing with the pain. Good topic with an interesting point of view.

  2. I perhaps have a counterpoint. As sometimes “natural” death does not occur due to medical intervention and modern treatments. Bodies must live longer and face worsening global conditions. There are theories that, in some cases, a soul will leave a body that was meant to die and survives only because of unnatural interventions and forces. Making it less like the euthanasia often thought of, and more like the way people once died naturally.

    It’s just another side of the debate that I heard. And yes, the person who said it was a spiritual leader, not a medical practitioner. I’m not saying right or wrong, agree or disagree. It’s just something I heard that put a different spin on things. The person in question was being kept in a state of prolonged suffering by machines and experimental treatments. Without that intervention, the person would have already been dead. The year the person was born, no such options existed. The person did not make the choice, the family did.

    1. I think that’s a very interesting point, as you point, it’s a great debate, if course one that’s important for many at the moment to decide if they want their beloved ones (or themselves) to become organ donors. And also, reading about old death certificates in my family tree, I wonder what we now consider “natural” death, maybe in some years might be some medical conditions that medicine could treat better, as I’ve seen many people just labeled as: “died of old age”. Now, about taking a stance about or against it it’s always difficult. And I hope it’s not a choice I’ll have to take for a relative. At least in the near future.
