Wake Up - Poem by jessica ivoy

Im sitting here waiting, and all i hear is 'wake up, wake up',
but im not sleeping.
Im trying to drown out everyones voice, but it wont work, they just
keep talking and talking,
as if theres nothing better to do.
The bell isnt ringing, there is still a long way to go.
And so it begins, im shaking, but why, the people voices are getting
slower and slower, and then its gone, everything, i cant see anything,
i cant hear anything, i cant feel anything.
As they rush me to the hospital i wake up, and then it all comes to me,
the people yelling at me to wake up, i realize it now, im dead,
i can see my lifeless body as my spirit is being lifted from it,
people are crying telling me 'wake up, wake up', but i never will,
i can see alight and its wonderful, but then its gone, where did it go,
was i going to hell, maybe, and then, i wake up.
