Another poem written after my sister's suicide...

My Unanswerable Question



Of Death and beyond I oft obsess
and query all who’d lend an ear
beliefs on Heav’n and saving Grace
bestowed upon our loved ones dear.

Upon my sister’s self-demise
I fretted where her soul may land,
for angry gods no doubt despise
a mortal’s death by her own hand!

Yet, would not those whose minds belied
their common sense and means to cope
be spared the judgement set aside
for those with reason, wit and hope?

Lo! Until the passing of mine own last breath,
I’ll continue to ponder the mechanics of Death.

(a varied Shakespearean sonnet)
