Most people are terrified of death
To the point that they forget how to live
This isn’t an attempt at being dramatic
Did you know death anxiety is a thing?
The official name is thanatophobia
And it’s infected humans since the dawn of time
Our collective fear would lessen
If all we did was accept our mortality
But our species, for all its wisdom,
Refuses to accept we can drop dead without warning
Listen up: birth and death are inseparable
That’s just the way it is for all beings
Being the most superior creatures
Does not exempt us from certain death
PS Yes, I know my previous post was about death too. What can I say? I find the subject fascinating.
