One red dirt road surely to lead us home.
Until we hit that patch of gravel.
It sent our vehicle spinning three hundred and sixy degrees around.
We hit the bar ditch and went flying.
My hands pressed against the dashboard.
My heart beat pounding faster.
Everything in bittersweet slow motion.
Until we crashed upside down like waves in the ocean.
My breaths began to shorten.
My chest cavity aches.
I'm trying to find a way out in all the chaos.
The windshield breaks and i slowly unstrap my seat belt.
I begin crawling on my knees.
Glass carving cuts into my hands.
I say Dear God please!
My heart beating a million miles per second.
I find my way in the darkness to the grass and the sand.
I lie flat on my back and tears fall from these eyes.
Adrenaline has failed me, pain begins to take it's course.
Is this really happening?
I roll over and stand on my knees.
The pain erupts through my body, and I look towards the stars.
Cuts across my flesh that will surely leave scars.
Thank you God.
For allowing me to live through this, it could have been such a tragedy.
I'm alive, and this will be just another part of a chapter that makes up history.
