Susan's father did not believe in the afterlife and he claimed that he wanted every last bit of life, even if he had to be supported by machines. He changed his mind after a long and futile battle with his illnesses. When the patient gives up, when his energy is depleted, only a quick death comes to mind. It is hard to imagine how Susan felt in this situation. She was concerned about making the best decision for her father's situation, but she also had to contemplate on her own beliefs.
He has seen corpses and walked with dying men. He was trying to help one of his injured friends when his friend died convulsively. Earlier in his experiences, especially when he first encountered fighting, he was immensely afraid of death, so afraid that he ran away from battle.

Again, in his revisions, I would suggest watching the amount of conjunctions used, like “and” which at times are unnecessary and a bit distracting from the imagery in the poem. Matthew’s line breaks are successful in his poems, however, I feel playing with stanzas to add a bit more structure to some of his poems could be beneficial and perhaps help the reader to break down the poem a bit easier when reading. I feel Matthew could benefit from looking at how Rosa Alcala uses line breaks in her work, especially, in “Metropolis” and “Patria”.

The funeral is over, and the rhetorical question that the poet asked at the beginning of the final stanza has been answered, and the noise has vanished. All is now quiet.

This is all I think about. There's only one issue here, I want to live. (270) Jack is obsessed with his fear of the unexpected. He explains to Murry that death does not make his life more satisfying, but only filled with anxiety. Jack does not want to know any information predicting his own demise, he is afraid of finding out his own "code", as in the case of his medical report that forecasts his death.

It’s not like his prey would be concentrated on how worn or dirty his mask was; though, it was the last thing they saw before he shot them through the chest. It could probably stand a short wash in the sink but he had already left the building and was now approaching the house which held his next victim.

Doctor Bernard Rieux almost becomes indifferent to the death and suffering. Jean Tarrou gives the ultimate sacrifice in the end for his fight.
When we are dead it is possible that we can no longer dream, but when we sleep we can dream. There is no reason to suffer through life for so long. Who would want to suffer all the things that are bad in life, and there is so much; unrequited love, the lack of efficient law, poor leadership. The patient man can not handle all of this and instead wants to take matters into his own hand even with a simple dagger. This would relieve the stresses that are suffered.
