There's No "Escape"

Updated on July 31, 2016

Let us learn to love and embrace our life and all the things around us that keep us happy while we still can. Afterall, we all pass this world once. No man in this world is rich enough to buy immortality.


It’s normal for human beings to fear death. Death is painful for both sides – to the living ones who will be left behind and to the person dying. But for me, I think what they fear is leaving everything behind, their families, children, and most of all the earthly things they have.

When people learned to live contentedly with their life, they are scared that one day; they wouldn’t see and touch the beauty of it again.


But that’s the reality of this life. In the end we all have to face death itself. We die so that others may live. We give chance to other to see the beauty of the world and to let them experience happiness and adventure.

Nothing’s lasts forever so while we are living, let us choose to be contented and happy so that when our time end, we have no regrets.

Let me tell you an experience I encountered with ‘death’. When I was still a kid, I saw my grandfather die in the hospital. No one helped him I guess. I didn’t know what death means at that time. I thought death means, sleeping for a long time like a couple of days.

After a day, I went to this room where he was laid, lifted his hand to put it on my forehead. It was heavy and at that moment, there was a tweak in my heart I couldn’t explain.

My grandparents were very dear to me, so when they said he was going to heaven, I silently cried. Heaven was a long way from home.

That’s the time I feared death. Not for myself but for the people whom I love.

To think that they will not be able to see you grow and change, that they will not be there when you get your diploma on stage or will see you dance and sing on a Christmas program.

When I saw my grandma getting weaker, I couldn’t help but worry for her health.

But there’s nothing i can do. A couple of years before she died, she said that she wants me to graduate and to work so that I could buy her chocolate (her favourite).

Of course, I never thought that she will leave too early. I was sad when I couldn’t do the things I used to do for them, buying those gifts, sharing bedtime stories and going to church.

As for my point of view, maybe we also fear death because we can’t escape from it.

We can’t do nothing about it when our time comes but as for the moment, we can make the best of our life first.

Living our life to the fullest, hugging and telling sweet I love yous to the one we love and or maybe fulfilling our dream adventure first. Maybe we shouldn’t think of death, it will make us scared and helpless.

We can think about the beauty of life or maybe taking care of persons dear to our heart. Believe me, I’ve been on that and I just take it for granted for I thought they will never go.

If only I will be given a chance to go back, I will make sure they will have the best life with me.

      sorry to hear, kevin. and thats the hardest part, to realized how great a person was when they're already gone, i've lost a lot of classmates and friends and they're just too young to die.and it was so sad to say goodbye.

      I just lost a great friend a month ago. The worse part about it was I never really knew how much of a great person she really was. It was the saddest thing I've heard in years.
