The waves kept coming

Over and over,

Each one lasting longer

As it rolled over my head.

And suddenly,

I knew.

There wasn't a way out of this;

No one could save me.

How would they know

I was in the middle of drowning?

How would they reach me?

I wasn't mad,

Though.

Because I knew

That it was God's plan.

And soon,

It would all be over,

And I would meet

The love of my life.

Jesus.

The pain,

The suffocating pain,

As it squeezed my throat,

It would all go away.

And I was prepared.

* * *

A thought crossed my mind.

What would happen

To all the people I cared about?

Delilah,

Ingrid,

Shane,

And yes,

My parents.

I hoped they would be okay,

And that they would find God,

Although I know

That Shane and Ingrid have Him.

But I know my family doesn't...

* * *

I can feel myself slipping away...

It's hard to

breathe...

And

My throat is burning...

Blackness is curling

Around the edges of my vision...

* * *

I wonder what heaven will be like...

I never really learned much about it...

And then I think of the first time I went to youth group.

It was going to be

like a perfect Earth,

Where there was no pain

Or suffering,

And it's filled with love

And glory...

I can't wait to get there.

I don't want anymore pain

or suffering...

* * *

The wave won't let up this time,

I can feel it.

It won't let me get a gasp of air.

And I can't hold my breath anymore...

* * *

I suck in for air,

That isn't there...

And then I'm choking....

* * *

I

can't

breathe

* * *

Light

clouds

my

vision

* * *

It's

Beautiful...

* * *

The End
