    Death is our one promised destiny in life.

    My Landlord's Daughter-in-law

    My house was an old farmhouse on a cattle ranch. The ranch seemed to stretch for miles. Its only access was a narrow dirt road. I was curious about the town's governance, so I went to town council meeting. When it ended, I rushed home to get back to my lover. I was probably...

    As a child, I attended a relative's funeral.

    His face seemed so calm, so free. I was afraid. I thought about when my time would come. But, my grandmother told me, that some day, we all have to go. We are here for a small period of time. It is a long life, but, time flies and the past is left behind. So, breathe freely...

    I understand why people are scared of death,

    I honestly do. The whole "dose it hurt?" "Will I go to heaven?" ( or whatever you believe) The unknown is scary sure. I'm not scared, why? Because I died before. ........ Just kidding. I'm just not. I guess it's because I don't believe peoples lives have any purpose. And I just...

    Fears are something everyone has to live with.

    Nightmares, threats, feelings. I used to be scared of the dark. I'm not anymore. It's not because I have realized that there is nothing there to hurt me, no. It's because I have stopped fearing death. When death arrives, and knocks on my door, I want to open the door and greet...

    I've never been concern on how I am going to die

    or who will even care. To be quite honest, I've adapted a frame of mind that if I die tomorrow, I'd have no regrets. Life to me means you do the things you want to do, in good manner and in good faith. Yes sometimes mistakes will happen but we learn from the experience. That's...

    The End

    Death does not scare me. How it may happen in the future worries me. Will there be pain. Will I be in fear. Will I be loved. Will I be able to reflect on my life with dignity. Will I be young or old. Will I be sick or will it be an accident. There are so many possibilities to...

    The Dying Process

    I believe that death accomplishes the following miraculous things. It replaces time with timelessness. It stretches the boundaries of space to infinity. It reveals the source of life. It brings a new way of knowing that lies beyond the five senses . It reveals the underlining...

    Renaissance means "rebirth" in French. I like this word. I like the way it rolls off my tongue when I say it, and it has a particularly intellectual ring to it that appeals to me. More importantly, a renaissance is something I have experienced. I've met many people who have...

    There is no point in being fraud of death.

    Death is natural. It's like being afraid of oblivion. It's going to happen and you have no choice in that. You have no choice in your death. For all you know it could be tomorrow, for many different reasons. And that's a weird thought. You could be somebody who's been...

    or dirt poor, we all share the same fate. Death is not evil, its necessary to erase the old and give birth to the new. Without it balance would be broken, and existence would be pointless. I would rather die and create, than live and forget. To join my ancestors is an honor, so...

    I have never really worried about death.
