    We need death. Death is the only motivation

    for staying alive. We can't define "alive" without "death". I m not afraid the things that I don't know. Nobody knows anything about death until they die right? So do I. I just hope that I only can die once, that'd be interesting. If it's a routine thing like a job, then I'll...

    As death wraps it's arms of shivering fear

    around me. I will now drain the firing blood of self hatred down the drain. Feeling my skin turn dead and icy. My dead eyes will now be blinded. My heart removed from its beat. I lay lifeless. People will call it suicide. I call it a solution. They would think it was a mistake...

    I believe in another life

    July 3, 2013 was the my worst day.

    My grandma fought cancer for 9 years and I watched her fight end. It's weird. We all knew it was coming. But to see her heart stop, to watch the person I loved most slip away was so hard. I remember hours before being by her side while she was on life support, holding her hand...

    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...

    I wish to die from drowning. I have grown up in the water and I wish to die in the water. One may think that drowning is a horrible way to go but I can assure you, it is very peaceful. I once had a near drowning experience. I knew that if I struggled then I would panic and die...

    I myself am not afraid of dying.

    I would hate to be widowed, though. I fear I would go crazy.. Like go off the deep end. I am very close to my husband. Spending one night away from him was bad enough.

    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...

    Death to me is just death.

    I'm not scared or afraid to die. I would happily accept it. It's apart of life. If your scared of death then your scared of living. Everyone is meant to die. Some people don't want to wait for death. Which is why they commit suicide. Some want to experience life to the fullest...

    I have been wracking my brain

    for a rationale to explain why death does not necessarily need to be sad. Birthdate and Deathdate are each finite bookends of individual existences. It seems silly to cry over either. But, to accommodate death is to also deal with the deaths of others- and mourn the imprints...
