I Do Not Fear Death (Tanka)

I do not fear death

For this life is illusion

  1. Interesting thought. Some days I feel like I’m not really scared of dying because this world seems so negative that the afterlife can’t be any worse. Still, every day we live is a chance to bring a beam of positive energy into the world.

    • And we should bring as much positive energy into the world while we are here. I just think that we need to come terms with our own mortality and what may await us on the otherside. This of course, is a very personal thing for each one of us.

      • True. Though I find that I’m becoming more interested in leaving a lasting, positive mark. Guess it’s the idea of once I’m gone, that’s it for my influence. Kind of like how I think killing a character is the end of their story so it shouldn’t be taken lightly.
