the shell

my out of body experience
has'nt happened yet
i'm still waiting for the moment
when my soul will leave this flesh

i don't want it in an operating room
where for a space my heart will stop beatin
i just want to go to a place 
where life stops repeaten

i don't need an experience
of my soul goin to hell
Jesus is my savior
and i know this very well

but if God should need a prophet
someone His truth to tell
then take my soul to that place
and return it to it's shell

    Good one John..Just to experience heaven and live to tell about it would be great..If for a contest, good luck..Thanks for the review of my work..Down at Savannah could be the paper mill that you are smelling for they give off a terrible odor as does the one in Macon, Brunswick, and Port St. Joe..Some say that it is the swamp that has that odor..Sara

    I'm with you, John. The only out of body experience I want is when I go to be with Jesus. I'm glad you liked my poems, "You Know Me Lord" and "Be Still". Thank you for your encouraging comments. Happy Easter and Happy Birthday whenever it is this month. Love, KIm
