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¨

Excellent piece but I hope it’s just your creative mind and not based on real events. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if when we die we do hear a heavenly choir and look upon the face of God saying “now you are free”.
