    Friendly Death

    "Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet...

    What is life? What do we

    even do to stay alive? Why do we try so hard? Why do we want to stay alive longer?

    I think people who fear death fear reality,

    death is all around you, would a fish be afraid of water? On the other hand, people who wish for death fear the reality, and pain, of life.

    I hate people who are happy!

    ! Like why are you happy?? Waking up everyday and breathing isn't something to be happy about!! Happiness is always taken away by someone, being happy is being weak being happy got no one anywhere!!!! If you're happy I hope you get shot down where you stand.. Happiness sucks

    Do you ever catch yourself wishing

    for it? If a car randomly sped by and just ended it all. Not going to end my life myself but I wouldn't be upset if someone did it for me.

    I don't fear death. I used to be terrified of

    the thought but now it just gives me something to smile about. I don't want to be forgotten or mourned, I want to be celebrated for everything I've been able to do in my life. I want stories told and laughter heard. I don't think death should be something to be sad about...

    When I finally awoken.

    ..I stopped fearing death for myself...I began to fear for those that which death was written in thier fate...and I strived to protect the weak from the inevitable effects of death...but sometimes I realized I could not save everyone...I can at least try...I don't mind giving my...

    I'm not sure many people realize

    that there's a difference between wishing for death, and simply being unafraid. Persistence of suicidal thoughts doesn't equate to fearlessness. Many people who consider committing suicide, still find themselves afraid of the end and what it might be like, and generally never...

    I have a thought about our own life

    and existence. Is our consciousness so unique that changing anything of our genotype would make us another person? I mean, if it is changed just one gene in our formation would Your consciousness still exist? or it would be another person, just like you perceive other people...

    resently I have learned

    that there is a chance for me to die... it feels horrible to die like that, I'm prepared to die alone but I need to finish some stuff before I do. I might be okay I might not be it's a fear I been living with for 3 months one more to go before I can actually see if I'm okay

    I dont fear death, its the living

    that scares me. Pain, physical and emotional, takes its toll and i have no choice but to brush it off and carry on. I dont know how its even possible to continue being happy, or even keep helping people or wanting to. But its what i do. I dont care about me, its everyone else...

    I fear dying alone. I fear going through my

    entire life and not leaving a mark. I fear being forgotten in spirit not in body.

    I have been with many people

    when they died. As a nurse I have always tried to sit with a person if they were alone when death was near. My wife and I sat with my father as he passed away. I would often tell them that they were tired. That it was ok to rest. Always talking to them and reasuring them. In my...

    I don't fear death. I could finally be happy in

    the afterlife. For I know I won't go to hell cause I'm already there. My father beats me physically and mentally. I have no friends and if I did I know that they would only stab me in the back later. So no I don't fear death because I wish for it to happen to me everyday.

    I may not be so suicidal anymore,

    but I stillhave no problem risking my life over things that other's might consider crazy or stupid (or both). and if it means I stop a criminal, I'll have to actually argue with myself about whether or not to try taking him out depending on my chances of success.

    Being There...

    I have seen human life end, up close and personal... there are so many things worse than death: mainly, an unlived life.

    The secret of life is to "die

    before you die" --- and find that there is no death.

    Thoreau said that most men will lead lives of

    quiet desperation and go to the grave with song still in them. I use to think that life was made up of a systematic routine. You live and you die. But lately I've realized how vaguely I've been acknowledging the realization of moral death. We all see death as a tragedy. Death is...

    There is no reason to be afraid of something

    you can't stop. One by one we are all going to fall prey to it. Some faster than others sure, but it will happen to you too. So why fear it? Why not worry about something over that you can control?

    I probably fear life more

    than I fear death. There are far worse things in life than there are in death. I’d like to think of death as a liberation of struggles, diseases, physical and mental pain, and obligations. It’s perhaps also an eradication of potential and possibilities, but all of these are...

    I think it will be a relief

    when all is said and done. No, I do not want to die. I have people that rely on me and need me. But when that time comes to an end, I will be ready for that dirt nap.
