The Right to Die

Even if you get the stuff you want, it may not satisfy. 

When production gets consumed, then you can only sigh.

Though a day of work may cause sleep because it makes you tired,

but great riches leave no space for rest; they’re al-wa-ys on your mind.


All the riches that you grasp may sink like water into sand.  

When a loss leaves survivors bust, with nothing in their hands.

We will leave this world as naked as we came into life.

For all the work we may have done, we earn t-he right to die.
