I often think about death. How sweet and cruel it sounds, how close it feels. I wonder….would I be releasing myself from all the pain in the world, and inflicting pain on others? We spend our whole life waiting to die. We know from a very early point in our life that after a short life, we will die and soon be forgotten. So if we spend our whole life waiting for this one thing, why do people fear it? How do we know it is a tragedy? It could very well be a release from all the pain and suffering we may or may not deserve. I do not fear death. I fear where I may go, I fear the pain I may cause on others, but I do not fear death. I am not scared to live and I am not scared to die. I will do both with pride for those who fear them.
