30 Questions Challenge: Death

3. How would you live your life if you had a week to live? How would you live your life if you had 5 years left to live? How would you live your life if you were going to live forever?

If I was immortal like most people I would enjoy myself. I’ll act more on impulses and go travelling to see the wonders of the world. There’ll be a point where this eventually becomes wearisome and I’ll outgrow my shallow self. I’ll try to improve myself through fitness and study. But there’ll always be an impending gloom on the horizon. A inevitable sadness that grows wider the longer I live and as the people I care for face the turmoils of life – sickness, old age and death.

My uncle passed away on Christmas eve. While we were not close, I knew that he cared for my mother as an older brother dearly looks over his little sister. There’s a crippling pain and grief that I know will never truly disappear. But I can only hope it will ease with time.
