Day two of this pleasant challenge. I’m gonna keep up the quotes coming from different deaths. Today, Death is coming from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.
For some folks death is release, and for others death is an abomination, a terrible thing. But in the end, I’m there for all of them.
I’ve written about death before, in the My Reasons Why post. Death is a pleasant thought. No matter what you do or who you are, we are all going to die. I’m not afraid of death, no I am more looking forward to it. Some days I am really tired of being alive. It’s not like I want to die but I have days where I wish I didn’t live. Living is hard, dying is easy. Sounds harsh? Maybe, but as I wrote, in the end we are all going down that road.
I find comfort in the fact that I can decide when, where and how to die, if I chose that alternative [and am ahead of death itself]. I have a plan, a way to leave this world and it is a soothing thought when I feel like I don’t want to exist. Maybe I should think more about living when I feel like that but it doesn’t help, I only see the ugliness of the world when I do that and I just wish I wasn’t alive even more.
Maybe I change my mind when I turn into a little, old lady with white hair and a bent back. Someone who is closer to death than I am now [age-wise]. You never know. All I know is that some days are days that shouldn’t have been at all. And then, Death is my friend.
