The night I Died
Two shots in my back is what got me
I never knew he had a gun, aint see it coming
I hit the ground face first, and i heard running
My back felt like fire oh it was hurting
I stuggled to keep to get air, my lungs were burning
¨Please don´t leave me¨ my sister said
while she was crying
I tried to speak to her but I was dying
She held me in her arms as i kept fighting
No i dont want to die, this aint my timing
I hear yells I and I hear shouts
Oh what is happening?
I´ve caught my breath I´m not dead!
Maybe I´m winning!
But the pain and my blood
Oh no I´m loosing
Please don´t let me die
This not my choosing
Then she´s gone I feel no arms, my sister left me
I look up at the sky, I cant be leaving
But as I fight for life the world starts fading
Why did I die? I thought I´d make it
¨Is that all that you rember?¨he just asked me
I nodded my head sadly, Cant lose those memories
He looked me in my eyes then said ¨no more suffering?
The gates opened slowly and I heard singing
I looked at God as he said ¨No you are free¨
