Something strange happened to me last night
or could it have happened this morning?
Let me try to explain; you see, last night as I started to unwind,
letting go of the tension built throughout the day,
I grew sleepy and decided to turn myself in for the night.
I had to drag my warn out body into my room for it’s evening slumber.
With great effort, I struggled to remove my clothes,
letting them fall where they may.
Asleep before my head hit the pillow,
I collapsed on my bed. I slept soundly, to soundly, I suppose!
I didnt stir once the whole night.
Then just like every other day dawn approached.
The sun slowly crept its way up and over the window pane,
shinning a beam of light to glare directly into my eyes.
I was not ready to wake up yet. I was not anxious to get my day started.
I pulled the covers up over my head and groaned as I turned over.
Just as I started to drift back into a deep sleep,
I heard a faint unfamiliar sound I had never heard before.
I yanked the blanket down off my head to take a look around.
I looked but I just couldn’t believe my eyes.
I thought to myself, “I must be dreaming”…
I even pinched myself to be sure that I wasnt.
You see, some how while I had slept through it all…
I was taken off to this bizzare place I had never been to before.
I closed my eyes tightly, rubbed them gently, then very reluctantly,
I took another look.
I felt an awful sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach to find
that I was still in this predicament
I had’nt a clue as to how the hell I got myself into.
I grew frightened though, I knew I had to do something
to get myself back home again. I took a couple deep breaths,
then slowly and cautiously took a step down from my bed.
I had only taken a few steps from my bed when something tripped me…
I tumbled landing flat faced on the ground.
I laid there flat faced as my imagination ran wild.
I was nervous, my heart pounding with anxiety, I began to sweat,
I could hear my own breath as loud as a lions roar.
I had to calm myself by repeating over and over inside my head
“be calm, you must remain calm”
That must have given me the courage to face the situation.
I sat up quickly and turned around only to discover
I was back in my own room as if nothing had ever happened.
I was back, I thanked God, I was back!!
I was about to faint but I didnt dare!
I sat there trying to make sense of it all.
There had to be a logical explaination for what had happened!
I was wondering how this was possible when, SHAZZAM, it Hit Me
I knew what had happened and I had to laugh.
I just sat there on the ground and laughed as I said Out Loud

Never Hesitate At The Start Of Your Day…
