The Writers Voice
Made Man - Chapter 7
I woke up in a dazed state. I had no idea what was going on, and I didn't know where I was. I could barely open my eyes. I was scared, more scared than I had ever been.
Finally I heard George's voice. He had been with me all night. He told me that I took a bullet that had clipped a part of my heart. My chances of survival were very low. He broke down and cried right there. I didn't know what to feel. Next thing I know I have a priest standing over me. He has his hands stretched out and is doing one of those last rights blessings. At that moment I knew it was final. I was done, they were positive I was going to die. I didn't know what to do.
As the priest stayed in my room, I wondered what was next. Was there heaven and hell as I believe? Which one was I gonna go to? It seems pretty obvious, but I started to pray anyway. I talked to God for half an hour. It was pure, no bull, I was like a child again. I didn't believe I was gonna be forgiven but I thought I might as well say sorry for all the stuff I put him through.
I told him how sorry I was. I started to run
through my life events, the worst and best. I
analyzed each. I had nothing else to do, I was
running out of time. I had a constant sharp
pain in my chest. Then I started to think about
everything, and I just started to cry.
Things started to get fuzzy. My vision was blinking out. I would have said something but I was too at peace. I started to hear a faint voice in the distance. I couldn't make out the words. I felt like I was floating. The sound started to get louder and I could finally make out the message.
It said, "Repent, my son, and you will be forgiven."
At that moment I knew God was real. I knew everything they said about him was true. If he would accept someone like me, he must truly be righteous. And at that moment I shouted out, "Lord My God, I am sorry for all my sins, forgive me."
My breaths started to get short and I knew it was finally time. I saw a white light in the distance. I started to crawl towards it. It got bigger and brighter. At the end was a man with his hands out. I didn't know why but I kept going. I looked back for a second and saw myself lying in the bed. George was hugging me and the doctors were examining me. I was gone. I had no where to go but towards the light now.
