A lifetime just passed. All my dreams of a bright future are buried in my heart, in an unknown corner that is dingy and dark. I have locked them all safely, locked them and thrown away the keys so that I myself cannot open them. That way life is easier. I do not know whether it is right or wrong, but surely that is easier. Who gets to decide right wrong anyway? But, today I'm happy because this is how I wanted to die. Stark naked, covered by weeds, grass and flowers. That is how I lived my life. Without concealment, without treachery, without lying. But, many lied to me, many did not let me achieve my dreams, many betrayed me and many had hidden intentions. So, I want to show them all that I have nothing to hide unlike them. And that is how I die. With all the dignity in the world. Inornate like naked earth.
