Hallo,

:)I really hope you can help me..

I'd like to convey the idea of a voluntary choice for death (!) - the context, however, is humorous, parodistic - and I want it to render a slightly archaic literary tone.
the sentence I wrote is: "now I shall abandon life (for eternal glory)"
but I'm starting to think that maybe "I shall relinquish life" sounds better. I'm confused.
A third option could simply be " I shall give up to life" - but I don't like it!

...If you could take a look at my attempt and tell me how it sounds to you..

many, many, many thanks in advance!


regards
Akemi
