    What is life? I just need someone to explain

    this to me. What's the point? We live to die? Why?

    Yes, I think about death.

    However, dying does not bother me at all. In a strange way, I find it something to look forward too.

    I work in a hospital.

    I see death all the time. I always wonder who will hold my hand when I take my last breath

    I always think what it would feel like being

    dead. Where do we go? Is there really a god? If not then what are we living for? Why are we trying not to sin? I think about this everyday. I'm not even sure If I believe in god...

    Are you afraid of death,

    or does it appeal to you? There's no purpose to our lives. We don't even really know the true reason for our existence, is the is one at all. So, pain aside, loved ones aside. What else is scary about death? I can't seem to come up with a valid reason. I mean, sure, seizing to...

    Sometimes I think I'm worth more dead

    than alive. As stupid as all of it may seem to be organ donation seems to be the only thing I could do to pay back to this world.

    So I find myself in a peculiar situation,

    and decided to write something about it, immortalize it if you will. I'm not quite convinced I'll be able to explain the situation and my feelings about it correctly, but I'll do my best regardless. I have chronic stomach reflux. Had it as a baby, have it still. It's been un...

    Honestly, the thought of killing myself is one

    thing that curbs my panic attacks. It makes me feel calm and relieved, like the fight is finally over. By no means would I call myself suicidal. I know people love me, I know suicide is unacceptable, but it is somewhat like a fantasy with me. I would never kill myself...

    Sometimes it scares me sometimes it doesn't.

    I feel it's hard to accept death it there is no afterlife, but how can we know if there is? It just makes my head spin. Like I never want to be without my son, I want to see his kids and theirs. I also think of how my parents are aging and me and it makes me want to cry.

    Age is so question. When I die I want to be

    dressed in a subtle Lolita. This absolutely screams 'forever young'. Seems fitting for me.

    and scary at the same time. What happens to the human body the moment we die and then the question of an afterlife. Is there anything I don't know. I don't think any of us do. But I do believe that our energy goes on. What scares me about it, is not knowing. For some reason I...

    There is life in death.

    I definitely believe that there is life in death. In a literal sense, a metaphorical sense, and obviously for some people a spiritual sense. When someone close to you dies you rethink your life. You face your own mortality. You try to find more meaning in your own life. In...

    If I Died Today

    I've thought long and hard about death. Don't get me wrong, I'm not suicidal, but I've always wondered what it would be like if I died. I'm not afraid to die; dying is easy, you just slip away and you don't have to worry about anything. It's hardest for the people around you...

    I Have A Positive View Of Death

    Death, when looked upon while alone, seems safe and secure, like an old friend. But while in the company of others, Death seems like no more than a selfish end. Like the dark side of the moon who I have never seen, I will never know Death until the world and I are nothing but...

    when where dead... What effect on the world will we present for the younger people? What is the point in being alive? And why do we live if we are only gonna be mourned over by loved ones when we are dead?

    Life sucks, I wish I was never born.

    I look at death as the best escape from all problems and I look at suicide as like a giant middle finger to all the vile, disgusting, vomitrocious, physical pain, heartache and all the nightmares in life. What's the point?

    Death is nothing at all.

    Not Only Do I Think About It....

    But I hope for it. I wish for it, and not amoung others. I know some people will say "I hope so and so dies" well for me, its "I hope I die" i've never wished death on another soul but mine. I think about death, and how peaceful I will be, and how I won't have to hurt anymore.

    Death Seems So Sweet

    Death seems like such a wonderful thing. A place where there is no more pain or injustice. All fades away in death; We are all in the same state when we die. That can never be said about life. Why do people prefer life to death then? Death is the achievement of all the noble...
