836. When he takes

When he takes his life
Too seriously
He suffers in the prison
Of futility.

When he takes his life
Too lightly
He suffers in the prison
Of absurdity.

When he takes his life
Too humanly
He suffers in the prison
Of temptation.

When he takes his life
Too divinely
He suffers in the prison
Of isolation.
