Challenge: As I Lay Dying
There is an American metalcore band named As I Lay Dying and I wonder if they liked the book, As I Lay Dying. Yeah, the mind can be weird and wonderful when it comes to thinking.
I wanted to tell mother don’t cry
To ask father to wipe her tears
To reassure my sisters that I’m going to a better place
To kiss my boyfriend one last time
To tell my friends that I love them and I was
going to miss them.
I wanted to hug everyone to let them know
That everything was going to be all right
But as I lay dying on the cold gurney,
The only thing I could’ve thought to ask
Was forgiveness from the Most High
For the sinful life, I lived.
