Prose Death Comes For Us All In The End

Death Comes For Us All In The End

Should I have written a letter? I mean once I slide off this roof, I’m embracing death as we all eventually will. Death comes for us all in the end, and today it is enveloping me. Strange how most people never take the chance to decide the manner of their death. They fear it and …

Living In A Library

If you could spend the rest of your free time in one place, where would it be? For me, it would be a library. Libraries are the places where I feel honestly at peace. The larger the library, the better. There is no better place to be than where the whispers of human knowledge are …

Have A Target And Stick To It!

On many things I stay true to the title of this post. I set myself a target and follow it through to its conclusion. However there is one area where I constantly fail. My fitness and healthy diet. Since I was 18 I have slowly got less active and heavier. This has been down to …
