BOOM! I am floating, flailing yet still sitting.
My mind and body are spinning.
I am dreaming, defying gravity, falling.
My destiny is unraveling.

BOOM! I am back to reality.
Wait, was I really dreaming?
I open my eyes and I could not believe what I was seeing.
Chaos, anger, screams, everywhere I looked there was a calamity.

I cannot breath.
I tell my self to think. Concentrate.
I get back to my senses and try to snap out of this trance.
A sharp pain circulates through my body.
I have now sunk into the abyss of desperation.

My legs are not working.
It all happened in a blur, so quick, yet somehow is slow motion.
Change of scenes, I am now in the ambulance.
My father winces with every commotion.

“Will you sing to me?” My father asks.
I start singing about heaven and its magnificent colors.
I sing about beautiful flowers and birds.
Then reality rushes back, and tears leave my vision blurred.

Fast-forward to a broken family and a crippled father.
One drunken man driving a car has left my family in ruins.
My life is forever changed.
Because of fatal seconds that can never be replaced.
