I Love ME!
I am in pain and suffering, can't you see?
Please let me go with my dignity.
I don't want to leave behind fragmented dreams
of a body that no longer has a means.
The pain that I feel as I struggle for breath,
only swells my desires for dignity in death.
My pleas are ignored, the doctors won't prescribe
The only thing I want; I don't understand why.
Despite fighting wildly, death takes us all;
from your pedestal of virtue I don't want to fall.
I see your looks of pity and remorse,
but I want to fly and chart my own course.
My time here is waning, I've no more to give;
I no longer desire my burden to live.
I love you dearly so please love me;
provide me a painless means so I can be free.
