The Last Option

You can always die.

My biggest argument for not dying, is that you can always die later. There are times when dying can be difficult to accomplish, like if you're tied to a chair, but I have faith. Sooner or later you'll accomplish it, if you really set your mind to it. The thing anyone can do, no matter how much they suck. You can always die.

But what if you can't? It's the most quietly terrifying thing I've thought of for a long time. No one knows what dying does. Most likely, nothing happens, you just stop being. But what if that's not the case? What if you're not allowed to die. You go to heaven or hell. You go to some silly alternate reality. You just stay, from your perspective, exactly in the same place as you were when you died? You start over and live through life again?

I want to live. No matter how sucky life has been at times, it's been really easy to choose life because you can always die, later.

But what if you can't?
