Existential poem about life and death.

When a man has reason to live
That's when he's most likely to die,
When he has more reason to live
He's even more likely to die.
When he has no reason to live
That's when he will live forever,
When he only wants to die
Death will touch him never.
When a man has had much more
Than any mere man can bare,
He longs to meet the Reaper
But Death is never there.
When a Man just longs for peace
And solitude from life's pain,
He goes to bed weary of life
Yet has to wake again.
