In death, people will find that it is a ravishing, striking thing. “Why Leaves Turn Color in the Fall” was written to show the beauty in death. People see how beautifully colored the leaves are, but they don’t seem to realize that the leaves are dying and that’s what makes them charming. The way that leaves change color is a process that most people usually won’t understand, but in order for them to turn colors, they have to die. Leaves are green in the spring and summer, and then for a period of time, the leaves turn a variety of colors; however, leaves are only those colors for a short amount of time. Leaves stay long enough for people to enjoy them, and then they dry up and fall off in the winter. Even though the leaves are dying in the fall, the leaves are magnificent. Most people having trouble seeing how death is beautiful. They can’t really get past the sadness that blinds them from seeing the beauty. An even harder concept is not seeing the beauty of death in leaves, but seeing the striking thing about death in other living things such as people. There is something lovely about death but people don’t seem to see it.
Most people are blinded by death. When people lose someone that is dear to them, they grieve over it. They don’t see the significance in the death. They don’t look deeper into it, they are stuck just dipping their feet in the water instead of actually taking a dive into the pool. The thought of death makes a lot of people melancholy, but really, death is bittersweet. This is because even though there are dismal people when it comes to losing someone, they can still rejoice about it too which is the problem that most people can’t understand, “How can someone be on cloud nine about losing someone?”
It might not be a very joyous time for the person that is grieving, but it is for the one that took their last breath. Everyone has heard of the saying “They are in a much better place now” whenever someone they know has passed away, which that saying is true. Someone, multiple people actually, are out in this world suffering, whether medically, or finically, but they are still suffering. Living in this world is a struggle. That’s why the deceased are in a much better place, they don’t have to worry about if they have enough money to do certain things, or pay bills, or be in any more pain that they have dealt with. It’s hard for most people to realize that. Mostly everyone is stuck in their own world of sadness instead of thinking about how their loved one feels in their new world.
Death is also radiant because it helps people appreciate the things they have in life. Most people take for granted the special people that they have in their lives. The problem with that is, they might wake up and not have that special person with them anymore. Death helps people realize how important it is to tell someone “I love you,” or be with them as much as they can because they might not the chance to do it again. Everyone has people in their life that they care about and love, but also most people aren’t acknowledgeable about the fact that someday they won’t be there, so they should enjoy the days that they have with them and appreciate every second of it. Lives can end just as quickly as they have begun. Anything can happen.
People can’t take for granted the days of their lives. People aren’t one hundred percent guaranteed another day to live. Most people take their lives and others’ lives for granted. They don’t realize how quickly it can come to an end. Most people don’t realize what they have until it’s gone. They are so used to having that certain special someone with them every day and then when they are gone, they don’t know what to do. When they are gone is when they realize how important that person was to them. Everyone is guilty of taking advantage of someone or taking them for granted and then realizing how important they are to you once they aren’t there for you anymore. Once they’re gone, they can’t have them back so it’s important to appreciate every moment with them.
Death is a part of the circle of the life. Everyone has to face the point of death eventually, whether tomorrow, or a week from now, or twenty years from now but everyone must face it eventually. Everyone is born, lives their life to an extent and when they’ve had enough, death comes and wraps its arms around them and takes them to a better place. Since it is the circle of life, everyone will see their loved ones they have lost eventually, so instead of mourning over someone that is gone, think about how much happier they are in their new world and how they’ll be reunited with one another in time.
Death is all around. Everyone dies a little bit more each day. Everyone will have to face death eventually and until then, they should appreciate the things in life that are special because it could be gone within a blink of an eye. Nothing is guaranteed in life so people have to make sure that they don’t take things for granted and love every moment of life. People need to tell the special people in their life “I love you” as much as possible and make sure to show it too. Death is breathtaking, and once people get past the mourning stage, they will realize the death is actually radiant.
