a person gets a second chance, but it is short lived

Guns ring out
And all turns black
As i hit the pillow
Proceeded by dirt falling on my sweaty face

Frantic as i am
i begin to claw at the dirt
Which is sufficating
Now i feel the Hell of Atlas

For hours it seems
To be nothing but a constant battle
Between my soul and the gravekeeper
Who only fuels Hells flames

But alas! Light shines through
Even in the presence of my darkest hour
A single ray of hope shines on me
Only to tease as it fades out

Rage overflows and
Enough is enough!
I scream as i claw away
with even more determination then ever before

it soon reappears
so i can breath at ease once more
but i dare not relent
for fear that is should fade away once more

Growing and growing
Becoming brighter and more powerful
I soon drag my bloody body
out of the hole in the earth's ground

Tree's surround me
While the beauty of the rising sun
stuns my eyes
for a mere moment

i begin my journey
one that shall take me home
to peace and happiness
of not just my own, but of everyone elses

As i begin
I notice the deathly silence ringing in my ears
Not a noise is uttered
Not even of my own movements

I pay it little attention
And begin to run
For without warning
Gunfire comes hailing down upon me

Such fiery as it is
I cannot escape
I have no hope
Until i exit the forest and see my home

Then i notice a stinging sansation
Coming from the back of my head
Reaching back to touch my head is too painful
And upon pulling my hand forward, i notice it is painted scarlet


I stagger forward
In mere shock of the red
That flows out of me
Leaving only a shell behind

So close!

I drag
my legs being useless
And refuse to obey my command
To keep going, to move forward

I reach out as gun shots ring out
And all turns black
As i hit the pillow
Proceeded by dirt falling on my clammy face

Frantic as i am
I try to claw
But i am tevered down
Now i must bear my own Hell.
