895 (who?)

Such a simple word, spewed without thought.

"I wish you'd die, I wish you'd be killed."

But what if we actually gave meaning to those words?

Can you understand the emotion, the magnitude, the weight,

Of actually seeing the life of an individual depart?

Can you look them in the eyes, as they bleed into your hands;

Observing their final moments, as the light fades from their eyes?

Or are you simply a soft-hearted coward,

Sitting fat behind a computer, wishing death upon others?

To say that one is deserving of death,

Suggests that you are ready to kill.

And if indeed you are ready to kill,

Then you too must be prepared to die.

"Now please, stop those tears my good man, we've only removed three of your toes so far (^_^)"

-Chen Yuan Wen, 9th July 2013
Somethin' that I can never stand is someone who likes t' tell others t' die.

Honestly, have ye ever thought about ye words. Do ye understand the weight of what yer suggestin'? If you're still thinkin' about this in a childish manner then perhaps ye might be pardoned fer ye immaturity, but those of us who understand the act, who understand both its beauty and its terror would never wish it upon anyone without bein' able t' take responsibility fer our actions.

Only a fool draws his blade t' make threats. Ye draw yer blade t' draw blood and you end it at that. Ye don't wave it around callin' foul, involve a dozen innocents in yer petty dispute and then run away behind an invisible screen.

You talk about death, you be ready to kill. You can't draw, then don't speak. This is what I believe in.

P.S. Havin' Co-Captain post this up on me behalf while I'm preparing fer me trip back t' singapore. Packin' is goin' well, I thank ye all fer ye support ^^.

In days long before computers or even electrical power, saying something like that to the wrong person and you enter mortal combat immediately.

That is why you should never provoke another man unless you are the better warrior. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

I take it ye've seen plenty a death yerself. Or maybe not?

Well perhaps ye should consider yer words more carefully young lass. Ye'd be surprised how elusive and dismissive a backstabber death can be.

Don't speak about death as if its some old codger who's gone deaf. Ye'd be surprised how active that old codger is. Even if your tellin other younger lads to stop usin death's name in vain. Your simply complainin. This be not the place for that!

Dough, ye might actually be older than meself.

First off, I'm male, so hello there x'D

Other than that, I reckon that death is something which I respect. It is an ending and it carries the touch of finality, for there is no changing it, no taking it back. Even the burning memories of the past may be changed, but not death.

As such, I think people should respect it without senseless use, lest they be caught by death itself.

P.S. Sorry this reply is like months late ._.

Yeah that's why I said months, plural x'D

But I agree, words are unable to explain.
