Death And Perspective, Contributed By @Olawalium

in death •  2 months ago 


Losing a loved one is a hard blow to deal with sometimes, truth be told. I know the pain of losing people close to you because I have lost quite a handful of them and I can tell you the pain etch deeper into your mind and your head. There is no easy way in dealing with death and that is the truth.

Death is everyone’s last enemy and we are all going to taste it at some point in our life’s journey. No man can live forever. If you have ever lost anyone close to your heart, then you can see a shift in perspective and idealism sometimes.

I attended a burial yesterday and my eyes opened to how frail human lives are. We are just like a flower that rises in the morning, looking all glowing and beautiful and in the evening time, it goes away; withered and undesired. When you lose someone close to your heart or you have witnessed the effect on others, you will see that life is indeed not to be taken too serious.


Don’t take life too serious because you will never get out of it alive.

We all struggle to be better and become better human and we tend to take things too serious when we are sometimes expected to loosen up. Life doesn’t come with instructions or a manual, so we live and learn as we grow and go through life. The death of a loved one will give you a shift in perspective only when you are the type that can think deeply.

You tend to see how people promise you and fail to live up to it. You see the dependence on human as a futile effort and know you need to be better for yourself and be responsible for your own life. You also tend to see how after every toil and labour, the end result is still to be buried; lying lifeless and with no worries anymore.

…to be continued…

Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn’t bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.

This life is nothing to start with, vanity upon vanity, everything on earth is vanity, ranging from knowledge, wisdom, understanding. Human will toil all day and night only to eat little or nothing from it. We are working for those who doesn't even know or see what we have passed through. Such is life. Particularly after losing my parents and others close to me, I realized and often think this Life shouldn't be taken serious. I don't value wealth thereafter, if you have money you died and if not our ends is till death, fool or wise ignorance or competence. The end is death, it is really inevitable.


Yes, we all die no matter our wealth, status, knowledge, wisdom or invention. Death is indeed the last enemy and no one can avoid it. This is why we need to put things into better perspectives so we won't take life too serious.

The only reality that is common to all but many wouldn't want to accept is death. That's the common ground where we are all equal, no matter the level or position, we will all die.
It's painful to loose the love ones, but the earlier we accept the reality, the faster the healing process.


Some reality take longer to understand especially the death of a loved one. There is no particular way to deal with it as you can only hope the person will heal faster in no time before it affects their own health too.

In a world where nothing is certain, death and taxes are.
