'To Whom Shall I Speak Today?'
To whom shall I speak today? I am laden with misery Through lack of an intimate ... Death is in my sight today Like the clearing of the sky, Like a man attracted thereby to What he knows not. Death is in my sight today, Like the longing of a man to see home When he has spent many years held in captivity. Anon (A dispute over suicide, Egypt, before 2000 BC)
