I could not live forever. 

There is a point where one stops living, and either dies or waits to die.

Immortality has been a terror for me since I could read. 

I believed if I lived eternally, I would be forced to suffer.

By the time I turned 11, I would often say: "to survive is to suffer, to live is to find meaning in that suffering."

Putting all emo aside, It then took me a while to realize the connection between life and energy.

Isaac Newton says "energy is neither created nor destroyed."

It makes me accept that we as humans are infinite. Our energy is not gone when we die.

All that we put into the world is here, and will forever be. 

Shared for always.

         Sarah made grunting noises as we passed the deli, I asked her why, yet she didn't answer me. It’s almost as if we’re tense every time we walk downtown.
