Comparison

Today’s prompt was difficult for me, and the poems seem to have been dragging in some deeply depressing areas lately, so I apologise for that. But this is what finally came at the end of the day – bear with me. ^_^

 
Comparison

The man on the ledge
wants nothing more than death.
His life is empty,
or so he thinks,
and he can only hope for
a swift demise.
Each moment is an agony.
He just wants it to end.

The man in the bed
in the hospital room
clings desperately to life
as hard as he can.
The pain is intense,
but he wants to live
like nothing else he has ever wanted.
Each moment is an agony.
But he just wants to live.

Who can say for whom
time crawls more?
Who can say who is right
and who is wrong?
The one who longs for death
or he who clings to life?
