A Story by god is not great, I am

My initial reaction to the sound of an ambulance is never sorrow, 
But rather envy.
I can never help but think what a lucky person they are
That they might have actually found their way out.
I close my eyes, wishing it were me.

Yes, you may feel envious. Maybe you think that person is lucky, but maybe that person doesn't feel so lucky. Death and injury can go both ways in many circumstances. For instance with cancer, is the person lucky to have an escape after much suffering for him or herself, or not? Sometimes death comes at the wrong time at the wrong place and sometimes for no reason at all. But that's life, quite the contradiction!

A very short tale in this story. I don't know. In my lifetime I try many ways to torture my mind and body. Today I'm glad to be able to help many people in my life. Dead folks are done and become distance and forgotten memories with time. A story that create reaction and sadness. Purpose of a writer. You did very well.

It's really very funny to me the level of attention this has gotten, because to me this one involves the least talent, i mean I am actually almost certain i simply said this in conversation, and them wrote it down.

I know this feeling well.. Although I can't help but feel sad when I think of the impact death and illness have on families, friends and loved ones all over the world.

I sometimes too have had these thoughts when my depression holds me bound but if it were our time would we really be so anxious to ride that route.
Dark but impressive read, keep em' coming

Way to put things in completely different perspective. What is alarming to others is actually a source of inspiration to you
