Death

It can be an ugly thing to view. As you see a thing bleed slowly through a thousand cuts, sometimes gasping painfully, at other times still, almost resigned to the impending end, and then just as it was going, it gives another primordial scream at the unfairness of it all. And a human voice sooths it saying - there there there, its going to be ok, everything will be fine, i've just given a painkiller, while twisting in one of the knives further.

But is it really unfair? things have to die, we all know that. As enchanting as the chimera of eternal life sounds, we've seen that eternal life doesn't ensure eternal youth. Eternal youth basically goes against every law of nature not to mention physics.

So things have to die. And its not pretty to see. But does it have to be like this, ugly, longdrawn, painful, full of stabs and fake promises?

Does it?

not much i guess, the ugly backstabbing and politicking thats the hallmark of the human condition. Currently displayed in all bloody glory at workplace. In a way I'm over-reacting, I guess I'll get used to it, or perhaps like the so called human resources, learn to twist the knife myself.
