Death

Joy Douglas

I know that death is something inevitable, but it’s a topic that scares me if I think about it. I think the worse deaths are the ones that are sudden, and you don’t have time to process the truth or come to terms with the situation.
My uncle died last year, and it took a toll on me. I knew he was going to die, but I still didn’t want him to go. In his final days, he looked very different. My parents wanted me to hold his hand while we prayed, and I didn’t want to because it scared me seeing my uncle like that.
My fear of death stems from me dying before I am ready to go. I want to live my life and accomplish everything I want to before I die.
