Dead or Alive

Is there realization when you're dead?
Is there a discerning moment
when you think
you're going to be dead
or when you believe
you're going to be dead?
At this moment will you
realize and know what you
will not give up and
you will fight for
until your death.

The thought is scary. We do not want realization when we're dead.

Hi Garry. At the point that you are going to be dead, I guess the first thing that you will think of is ask help from God or ask forgiveness for your sins to be able to die in peace. Welcome to Wikinut. Thank you.

The intimation of mortality is quite an experience. I guess there's instinct within that will tells us when the time has come.
