think about it

what does it mean

because it doesn't

make any sense to me

i'm refering to the phrase

near death experience

is that what happens

as we approach the end

because in my reality

i have a near death experience

almost everyday

i choked on some food

my breath was taken away

i slipped on the step

i could have fell backwards

and broke my neck

i ate some food

that was out of date

i've walked across

an unmarked grave

i fell asleep

at the wheel

i'm made of water

none of me is steel

how far does one have to be

to have a near death experience

you see i drowned once

and was brought back to life

i had skin grafts to my legs

and my backside

i had a marine accident

i've had a blood clot

and a dislicated hip

sometimes i can be awake

but my body doesn't feel a thing

as hard as i try

there's just no responding

then i wonder

near death is that what i'm feeling

near death experience

what  does that mean

i think i have them everyday

just between you and me
