Suicide – Sivaprasad V., Kerala

An act of cowardice when a loser does
Disgrace to kins it brings
He does have the right to live but the right to die is not his
Escaping himself from worldly sorrows is crime he commits

An act of valour when done to eliminate the infidels
Laurels and accolades to the martyr it gives
His is a holy act as salvation his soul attains
Murdering pagans opens him the door to heavens

An act of heroism when a patriot commits to outwit traitors
Sound of sighs and chants reverberates
His is sacrifice unparalleled and flawless
His soul will be spared in the other worlds

An act of redemption when depressed Plaths* embrace
In dreams and letters live scores of such souls
Born they to end themselves but taste eternal honours
As the one who drowned herself in the Ouse**

*Sylvia Plath was a famous American poet who committed suicide at the age of 30.
**Virginia Woolf, the celebrated English author, drowned herself in the River Ouse at Lewes.
