Enter at your own risk

I seemed to have hit rock bottom.

I’ve reached the end of the tunnel.

But where am I?

The whole place is lit up.

Like a disco with strobe lights.

A bright light is shining

through a colorful archway.

Should I follow the light?

Is this the light that appears

during near death experiences?

Am I dying?

I can hear birds chirping.

Does heaven have birds?

I have no choice.

There’s no time like the present.

Time to follow the rainbow.

I hope they have Skittles.

Or at least a Yellow Brick Road.

I’m off to see the Wizard.

Tune in tomorrow.

    The wizard of Oz was one of my favorite movies as a kid back then. I like the poem much.

      I also loved the Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. I want to see if I could come up with something as quirky.

    If you like Skittles, there will definitely be Skittles “-)

    I never tried Skittles, but I was reminded of the commercial, “Follow the rainbow.” Rainbows have always looked magical to me.
