When Sorrows Come

When Sorrows Come
(Inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ of Denmark)

“To be or not to be, that is the question?” says Hamlet.
Should I or should I not?
Is not such a man, a man that cannot make up his mind?
The witching time of night, to drink hot blood, comes and goes!
‘Don’t kill the fool, he will go to heaven and you, you to hell’ (he ponders this, within his mind’s eye, his drowning soul)
Does he not think: revenge would be the king’s salvation?
If it does not come now, it still will come!
But at the end he kill’s the king, nonetheless, out of love and sorrow.
