why are you telling me I'm being selfish in having no desire to be alive,

isn't it truly selfish to put yourself before me when I am so obviously in pain,

isn't it selfish to ask someone to suffer through something there is no end to,

isn't it selfish to ask someone already dying to want to be alive when that will lead to my own dissatisfaction,

or is it selfish how the world can take the life of someone who hasn't yet lived
