That is interesting what you responded to me down here. wouldn't it also go against the grain to have the "stronger" sex be the one who was at first afraid of death and then succumbed to it with no fear? I wish I could have said in my haiku how he was fighting cancer and did not want to die before it happened, but haiku is too small to allow all my thoughts!!

my perspective is from that of a male and yours that of a female, I find that interesting that we would perceive this death from our points of view..it never occured to me that in the end the guy would not leave with dignity no matter how frightened to start..women on the other hand being the bearer of life would fight death, or am I wrong here

yes, this happens to a lot of us every day! about my aha moment, you said something about using feminine voice. I was wanted to tell you about my inspiration. I had watched a cool movie yesterday in which the guy fights against cancer, and finally he lets himself go to death saying he is not afraid. I am curious why you think "she" would sound better!

because of perception, that women are the weaker sex and the one in the poem is showing great strength, I thought it would go against perception...
