    When the death is the one of my two words, how do you expect me to cling to...

    When the death is the one of my two words, how do you expect me to cling to the life?

    Is it correct?

    When death is one of my two words (or worlds?), how do you expect me to cling to life?

    BTW, what are you trying to say?

    Are there any sentences that come before or after that one?

    Does a sentence all by itself really mean anything? Also, what is the sentence in question supposed to mean?

    I don't ask the meaning, I ask if it is correct for grammar.If you want to know its meaning, I meant:

    When I am close to death, how do you expect me to cling to life?

    The original sentence is a grammatical sentence, but it doesn't mean anything.

    (It is only when a person is close to death that he clings to life.)

    Unless a sentence has some context to it it has no meaning.
