“Where am I?” I wondered. I was sitting in the train last time I remembered when abruptly I found myself in a hospital. There were people all around me and all I would see was blue, people with blue clothes. I would perceive the voice of people and I tried answering back, they would keep asking me “are you okay?” I tried to make any movement possible, but I felt like my body was 1, 000 pounds, nothing would move I couldn’t even say a word, I felt all numb. I wouldn’t even blink. Your probably wondering where I was, but at this point I didn’t even know.
All I remembered was that I was in the train last. So sitting there incapable of any sort of movement and not knowing what was happening or what was to come the only thing that ran through my head was that I was minutes before death, or maybe I was dead already. Your probably wondering what happened, well obviously I’m still alive, thank God. My name is Nick Brown I’m currently twenty-one and living in New York, where I have lived my whole life.
I’ll tell you my life-story and explain to you everything that has happened during my adolescent years. I was a very rebellious teenager. When I was seven-teen I decided to drop out of school and do nothing positive for myself I used to take life as a joke as well as my parents, family, and everyone that tried to help me through-out the misery that I was going through. Some people would call it a stage of rebellion and others will say I’m just simply trying to be independent and have things my own way. But it really doesn’t go down like that in my world, at that time the problem had to do with a girl. The name was Melody Dawson.

I was going crazy over her she was my heart. My parents didn’t like her at all they didn’t want me with her neither did they want me talking to her in any sort of way. Two years after I met her she moved to Florida I decided that I wanted to be with her my whole life, I would fool around with other girls but there was nothing like Melody, it was like the other half of me was missing. I finally decided to leave my house and go find her after I had dropped out of school. My whole family was furious with me but I had to do what I had to do. I took the train to Florida and left my whole family and friends wondering where I was.
I mean its not like I’m cold-hearted or anything but I don’t like feeling like they got me on lock. I wanted to show everyone who was the man or in other words that no one can hold me down. And most important of all I wanted to show everybody what was to become of me and show the people who thought lowly of me that I had the capacity to do anything I wanted without my families help. The train ride was 22 hours long; I only spent 13 hours on the train until it crashed.
I was found in the hospital with no one by my side. No one there to help me or comfort me. I was found unconscious and was in a coma for two weeks. At least that’s what the doctors say.
The doctors were trying to identify who I was and at least a phone number they can contact. To my family it was like I was dead for two weeks but for me it was like a new life for me waiting to start or maybe it was a punishment from God because of the misery and pain I was bringing to my parents. I take it as a lesson to myself. After four years I find myself in a wheel chair unable to walk and with problems breathing. I’m married to Melody and we have one child but the sad part is that any day now my life can me blown away, without me knowing. Just until that last breath comes and I cant exhale in inhale anymore that’s when ill know that you cant take life as a joke.
But appreciate what you have because then when you lose it your going to want it back. And sometimes you can’t get it back. I’ve learned to have patience and one more thing. It wasn’t that my parents didn’t like Melody they just wanted me to wait for the right time to come because they knew where me and Melody were going to end up if we ever got together earlier. But because of me not having patience I have to cope with the consequences. In life you have to make sure you ” re on the right train.
