    Bones lose their strength,

    Flesh starts to rot. Everything goes away Underground or in a pot. Knowledge begin to fade, away from your grasp, Beauty deteriorates Nothing ever lasts. Some have tasted death Bitter yet sweet Cool but no heat Breathing but no heartbeat. So don't be afraid Of the...

    Am I the only one? Honesty,

    I would kill myself, but there's people that cares about me, I guess I don't want to be selfish. The only things I hate when I'm gonna die is, people becoming sad when I'm gone. I'm also scared of dying slowly, I would prefer shooting my own head instead of drowning. I guess the...

    I'm Afraid Of Something Else

    What I fear is dying before I feel I'm ready. You see, when I'm feeling suicidal or I'm just gloomy, I don't care if I die that very moment. I'm not afraid. But the truth is, even when I'm happy or in an okay mode, I'm still not afraid of dying; I'm afraid of time. I'm afraid...

    I am confronted by death on a day-to-day basis

    since I was 19 years old. The uncertainty of the disease progress that I have made me realize how thin the thread of life really is. Also, losing someone close to me to cancer - it made me realize further that I have to make the most of what I have. Life is simple yet complex...

    Instead I Am Afraid of Life Itself...

    It is just how I am now. I am always afraid to live another tomorrow, I always feel intimidated, depressed, stressed, sadden inside me. Not even how hard I try to smile or be happy, the feeling always comes back.

    I Am Not Afraid Of Dying.

    Yesterday, when I woke up to the stories about the terrible things happening in Japan, the words "I will die like that" escaped from my mouth. That was when I realized that idea of the end of the world --as we know it-- became real more than ever and I didn't feel scared, I didn...

    I'm Not Afraid

    Dying is the easy part. HOW you die, now thats the scary part. You can't pick how your going to die and you cant pick when you are going to die. So you have to enjoy life and everyday a great day, because it may be your last day. I won't lie, I'm not afraid to die. It's just how...

    All things must come to an end at some point.

    I don't want this life and I never really have, Dying has never really seemed like a bad thing to me. I wasn't raised religious, I don't believe I'll go off to some magical place in the sky, or (much more likely for me), to the firey depths of the world to burn for all eternity...

    You Never Know

    I'm not afraid of dying. I'm afraid of living, waking up each morning and not knowing what's going to happen. You never know when or how you will die. I like to live in the moment and experience life. Try new things, some reasonably dangerous, if you live in a constant fear of...

    And if I do die, there's a very high chance

    that it will be suicide. I honestly would've done it tonight, but my friend, Ryan, talked me out of it. Never the less, there is this horrible feeling that soon, I am going to take my own life. It's inevitable I guess. But in case that does happen, I want you all to know who I...

    I'm not afraid because personally I think death

    It's inevitable. Why not just enjoy what you have and embrace it? Doesn't mean you have to sit there and wait for it to happen.. I've wanted to die. I've been in a low time, and I've wanted to just end it. I would never DO it, but I've hoped. Howeverr.. I have a daughter, and I...

    He comes to me mostly at night but not as vividly as he did in the first years since his death. He has sent messages subliminally.
