Dying

No one in this world
Is truly afraid of death.
They simply do not understand
The concept of death.
They don't try to.
And what we don't understand,
We don't like.
Also, we are afraid
Of the pain
That death brings with it
And the thought of being forgotten
Not being in this world
And no one remembering that you once were
Dying is in the depths of our minds
And we only bring it out
At desperate situations.
We are unable
To embrace it
For what it is;
The end of life
As we know it,
Another beginning
Into the unknown.
