I Wanna Die Young!

I want to die young!

But only one problem!

When does 'young' end
and 'old' begin?

    two great comments below. not that i would ever say the same thing. some unlucky people go to bed 'young' and wake up 'old'. some get a bit older every year, or month, or week. some get a lot older within a few weeks or months. some go to bed young (or old) and just don't wake up the next day [this might be MY choice]. but, if you want my personal views on when i wanna/think i should die:

    ....... well, i'm gettin' old and don't remember the title(s) to give to you. besides, probably few if any are interested! . if you are, just ask. :)

    i've 'always' thought no one asked me when i wanted to be born! at least let me choose the time for me to die! ! !

    i think it is selfish and presumptuous for others (including 'relatives') to decide whether or not a person, still capable of making her/his own decisions rationally (some might not agree on what is and is not rational, unfortunately) , should be able to choose death over life. what is so sacred about staying alive, sometimes at any cost? ? ? ?

    a nice little question and quandary (for some) is posed by this poem. thanks for sharing. bri :)

    SO, WHAT IS YOUR ANSWER? HMMMM? these days, i think my age,65, is still 'young', but at my next birthday i will definitely be OLD. (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
