Rain. Hurts

I walked under the shelter but was still drenched. Cold.
I saw a Javan Myna stuck in the drain lying on its back, trying very hard to free itself. Huge rain drops were falling hard on its little body and injured wing. I couldn't reach the bird. Even if i could, i may not have dared to pull it up with my bare hands. I stood and stared for a short while. It probably died already. Sad.

Why do it die when it tries so hard to live. Why do some, be it humans or animals, can't die even though they really wished to. Whats life? Whats living? Why do we have life and why are we living? When we all know that we'll all be leaving one day.

My opinion.
Sometimes we face problems or pain that seems too much for us, we choose to escape and wish to die. Can't die? Cos time isn't up and we haven't done our best to overcome it. 'They' always say live life to the fullest, even though we know that it will end someday.

Ask God when you meet.

well, for me i think that death doesnt always solve problems.. to some it seemed like an 'easy way out' but i think that it's just escaping.. like recently the girl from temasek poly who sucided.. i believe if she talked to someone about her problems she would've overcame her problems.. death isnt always the way to go or to solve problems. life's never easy, it's up to us to find our way out. till when our life really ends, then it's our ticket to freedom. while we're alive, then we gotta live life to the fullest and solve problems, not escape them...

and when we finally meet god, we know it's time to be carefree .. no more troubles!
