Being Human

Brenda planned to survive in pulsating poems Existential conflicts she resolved beautifully In her deathbed told her husband to see to it Needy patients should be handed her organs Given the eventuality of her being brain dead Her son upon the brain death organized it Urology Ward offered Carla for the kidney Mary in GI unit got the liver, Clara the cornea Ample life in the death is indeed awesome Nightingale in some of us is deathless ________________________________________ July 7, 2016

I love where you took your Acrostic - the needs of humans within the acrostic about being human covering a very humane act. Well done and unique ... CayCay
