“Long Stairway” -Trick or Treat , All Soul’s Day 2015 International Call for Submission

Written and Posted by: Margie Babon



Every day I use to walk going to school and going home with my eldest brother. Most of the time, my brother left me to go with his friends to play then he comes home late in the afternoon. One time, I ask help form my brother to carry my books because my bag is heavy. But then my brother is just ignoring me. He is running so fast and I keep chasing him. As we are near to our house, my brother still running while crossing the road. And I still follow him with my heavy bag, I run…I run…and when I cross the street….bang!!!! In a matter of a second I saw my physical body lying on the road, dead and full of blood.I saw people are in trouble. Men are chasing the driver that is trying to escape. Some are shouting, yelling, and seeking help to lift my body.  A ten-wheeler truck has hit me.

In a matter of seconds, four spirits appear beside me and the wind is carrying us so fast and I cannot do anything even though I don’t want to go. I did try to escape and go against it but the wind is so strong. I am like falling leaves following the direction of the wind. It was fast…really fast…then I found myself in a cave full of candles. Each candle has a name on it. Some are tall with a bright light flaming. Some are short, some are flickering, and some have weak light. Some have no flame at all though the candle is still long. Then I saw a very short candle with very weak light.  I went close to that candle and saw the name of my grandmother. “Grandmother will die soon,” I said to myself.

The wind carries me again so fast. Still the white spirits are with me and in a matter of a second, I found myself in a place where everything is white light. Then I saw a long stairway that looks endless.  I walk to the stairway until I heard a huge voice of a man. He said, “Do you really want?”My tears began to fall. I am crying so loud and pleading the man, saying, “I don’t want to die yet!! I don’t want to die!! I want to go back! I want to go back!! I still want to live. I want to experience having kids, to have my own family. I still want to live. I want to go back, I want to go back.”  Then in a matter of a second, I found myself lying on a bed. I saw the nurse walking at the hallway, walking towards me carrying a tray with huge syringe. I am trying to move my feet, I am trying to move my hands but I can’t. When I turn my head to my right, a freezing dead woman is beside me. I yelled so loud, I cried, and called my mother. The nurse was shocked; she throws the tray and yelled upon seeing me alive. She was so frightened, she ran away from me while shouting. She left me crying inside a cold place. I am inside the morgue.

This story is based on a true-to life death experience of my eldest sister. She was only nine years old when she died then came back again on Earth to experience to become a mother. Now she is fifty-five years old and has three boys and still vividly can tell her journey in a spirit world. Like some people who experience death or near-death experience, they have common story of reaching a white and long stairway.

The story itself is signifying  that people don’t want to die. People want to continue living in the physical world and fulfill the roles they want to accomplish.

Have you wondered why people are afraid of death? Is it because it is unknown experience? Or is it about fear of the mystery of the unknown? Why are we afraid of death considering it is part of natural process of life?

From the book Talking to Heavens by James Van Praagh , “Many spirits have communicated through me and telling me that death itself was easy but dying is not. There is pain contained in the physical body but when death arrives, there is no longer pain or discomfort. The condition of the physical body remains as only part of the memory, in the mental state of the spirit, only memory; the feeling is gone.”

My sister said, “I did not feel anything, no any pain when I exit my physical body. In fact I did not know that I have passed away. I only feel the pain when I wake up inside the morgue.”

Trick or Treat 2015-12 oct


No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is at should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s changing agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. –Steve Jobs

The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living. –Marcus Tullius Cicero
