I skip the news updates on Corona horrors and vaccine developments, except for the economic impact.
I am not afraid of death.
Yet, I think I’ve seen death closely than ever before – lurking in eyes, expressions, behaviour patterns, ostracisation of people considered unsafe ….making me fear it will continue as an obsessive compulsive disorder in the post Covid era.
I’m tempted to ask them, “Do you think death is scarier than the life we live today?”
gratitude, compassion on exit paths -giving way to fear suspicion -are we moving forward or backwards?
A person with claustrophobia who refused to wear a mask, and ridiculed people staying indoors falls prey to the dreaded disease. Doctors surmise that the cause of death was cardiac arrest, not Covid, and it could be due to his resistance to the bipap mask, which was needed to restore oxygen levels. Makes me wonder how many people have died of the disease, and how many of fear?
overpowering paranoia as invisible dragons enter breathing spaces not knowing if they will take -a few days, money certified normalcy kinship Or mind-sets?
There are many who die of old age or non-covid diseases, but do not get a decent funeral. I wonder what were they thinking in their last moments. Would they have liked to wait for better times? Or happily bid goodbye to those who had distanced themselves?
final moments bringing a recap of life what could have been better does it really matter how deliverance came it is just the end of a game.
