death, dying. Neither scare me. Pain does though... I am neither intimidated nor wary of dying - it will happen for me pretty soon so why worry about it.
I just don't like pain, I do not want a long, painful, lingering illness that takes me away (damn, too late for that now, isn't it...) Oh well, life has enough challenge and wonder, reward and punishment, to occupy my time. I'll leave the concerns of death to Thanatos.
Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.
