    So How Should We Be Treated Fair

    I think almost everyone would agree, we do not want to be living very old, that we could be a burden to our loved ones. Once we come to realize that we are getting old comes the idea of fears from getting old. Fear, mostly of becoming to be a burden. But who knows what would...

    I Don't See It

     When I was a little kid, I could see myself living to be very old. Now I don't think so. Most likely, I will not live to be very old because of all the damage that I have done to my body now. And I might kill myself soon like in the next couple of years or earlier than that...
