People see death as
something to be afraid of
Something damaging and terrifying
For me it's more like a necessity
Inevitable one at that
And if it's going to happen anyway
Shouldn't I choose how I want to greet it?
It's all going to end and when it does
I hope it's for something
bigger than the life I have led
Whenever I am gonna die
I hope it's to protect someone
It's not me being selfless
It's more of a selfish
reason I would say
It would be fulfilling to know
Someone got to live
and cherish every moment
I don't wish to be a hero or legend
I only dream of dying so
that someone gets to live
It wouldn't be that bad of death, would it?
