Blown Away

 Thanks for opening! I hope you enjoy: Blown Away
Thoughts filled my mind, spilling into my heavy chest. Will I live to see tomorrow? I had been in an accident, and the car door was on my chest, constricting my lungs, and crushing my ribs. I could hear screams and shouts, and my brother was trying to pull the car door off me. “Hang in there, Joanna!” I thought back to what had happened earlier that day.
“What are you doing, slowpoke?” 
My brother had said. I had looked at him like he was crazy. “I’m going to take a drive.” My brother had laughed at me. “You know you’re too young to drive.”  I rolled my eyes. “I was hoping you would drive me there.” My brother raised an eyebrow. “What is there?” I laughed. “There is the skating rink.” “Okay, I’ll take you there.”
At the time, I hadn’t thought much of it. 45 minutes later we were cruising downing the highway, remarking at the visit. “That was AWESOME.” “Yeah it was.” I looked at my brother, then at the radio. “May-” “You may.” My brother, Levi, laughed as I sang along to my favorite song. Suddenly there was squealing and I felt the car flip over. But back to the present. As I lay there, panicking as every breath crushed my diaphragm even more, I thought. ” I always thought I wouldn’t die young. But I was wrong.” Then I remembered God. I had never believed in God. “God, if you are real, I want to give my life to you. I believe that you are the truth, and that you will take your children to live with you in heaven when you come again. I heard the pastor, and I’ve decided to accept you.” Immediately I felt peaceful. As my chest moved slower and slower, I smiled. “I’ll see you soon, God.” Then I drifted away into darkness.
That’s it. Thanks for reading. Comment below if you like it.
