A girl is telling herself she isnt afraid as she is dying.

Tranquilty does not go with death.

Slow motion does not mix with the fast moving pace of adreline.

I do not mix with life.

Closing my eyes I see a world different from my own. The one I am leaving.

My palms are sweaty. I see a lovely and graceful jellyfish. It moves it a dance-like trance. Beautiful.

I open my eyes and everything becomes blurry and the voices around me are deep, as if put in slow motion. They sounded worried and afraid.

I know what's happening, Im dying. It feels exhilarating. Dying is bringing me alive. I am leaving this life for a better one where pain is just a word and sadness is not known of. Im ready.

Im not afraid.

All sound becomes a static ringing. My hearing waves in and out. My vision comes clear as well as my hearing for a moment. I saw the soft features of my family. I hear " I love you." I must answer. I have to. I open my mouth and try to speak. Nothing comes out. They have to hear my last words before I go! They need me to speak!  But what if it hurt to talk?. . .

Im not afraid.

My vision blacked out but I could hear fine now. They are crying. Please don't. I want this, I will see you soon. They don't need to be sad! I need to speak! I open my throat and breathe through it like testing the waters. Finally I hear my voice break! And I say " I love you," followed by

" Im not afraid."

Then my world went away and I breathed my last breathe, hoping my words soothed my family. My heart slowed and Im almost completely gone.

Im not afraid.

Now I'm no poet, not by a long shot, but I liked this. Some of the stanzas could have been split up, but that's just a personal style preferance.

Very Nice :)
