You have had your whole life to prepare for your death.
So why are you surprised?
This death is merely a stepping point from point A to point B.
Death is the same as when you graduated from college.
Death is the same as when you married.
Death is the same as when you gave birth and became a mother.
Every day is a new kind of death.
Death is the end of something old
and the beginning of something new.
All of your life you have had time to prepare for it
you have done nothing
pretending that everything is fine.
Every day is a new chance
to wake up
what is happening
And every day you have
Every day you have
that everything is the same.
When we remove all evidence of
from our lives
we have no evidence
This is our undoing.
This is our great lie
that we tell ourselves
and each other.
nothing stays the same
we keep everything the same
in order to
make ourselves feel better.
when it all
catches up to us
Don’t be that person.
Greet death at the door, smiling, with roses.
