are you ready to die?

I had this thought about death and wondered if I was ready to die right now (we can't choose when we die, right?) And I realized that even though I wouldn't change any of my decisions in the past, I think there's more to life than what I have now. I don't write poems but I was even compelled to write one because of what I felt at that moment: http://thingswelovetohate.blogspot.com/2009/04/deaths-pov.html I don't think I'm ready to die just yet, are you?

I think we should be ready at all times to die because we do not know ehn it will come to us. But I think we should not be thinking about it that much they will come when they come. Preparing for it is a natural thing to do because we all are going there, young or old it is destiny and no one can stop that from coming to us.

No,I have so many things to fulfill that I want not to die immediately.Although my life is boring I think,I haven't prepared to die.I'm just 24years old and I haven't travelled around(my dream),further more,I haven't got married and gave birth to a child,I want to have these experiences.There are so many reasons for me to continue living in the world that I can't die.

I just don't know only God knows the perfect time but looking up straight to my life I can say that I'm not yet ready to die because of the following good reasons; 1. I'm still love and enjoy my life 2. I'm still young 3. I'm still single and don't have family yet 4. I still have many works to do 5. I'm still searching and discovering things to know my life's purpose

I don't want to leave my loved ones. If God is ready for me I guess I have no choice in the matter. I do keep a journal for my kids just in case anything does happen to me they can read it when they get older. Just things that they have done and are doing in their life as they grow up.

I think I will never be ready to die. No matter how fulfilled my life is, there are always new things I want to try. What's more, for the people I love, I feel I never have enough time to be with them. I'm not ready to leave them yet.

I think even I achieve some of the things I want in my life I think I am still not ready to die :-( I am afraid to die because I will feel so lonely leaving my loved one behind whom I know they still need me in their life and I need them too. I don't know which one is better, me first or them but for me I think I will stay with them as long as I can. I don't want to die yet. I still need to do a lot of things. I want to experience more, do more. But if God is calling me then it is time..

Yeah I'm ready. I may only be 28 but most nights when I fall asleep I pray that I don't wake up. Sad but eh. I'm tired.

Hi oyen...I'm not ready to die either. In fact I just started living when I got married and had a child! Besides I don't think I could leave this world with my house the giant mess that it is right now...

One of the things I am afraid of is dying. Not because I don't want to die, which I don't, but because there's still so much for my kids to do as they grow up. There's a lot I still want to accomplish, like getting my degree, and I want to be here for my family. So, no, I'm not ready to die.

I am ready to meet my maker as far as my soul is concerned but I enjoy life too much to want to die any time soon.
