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.
