You would be dead. You wouldn`t even get halfway. The emense gravitational pull would rip apart your molecular bonds. However, if you survived that, you wuld still die because the closer you get to the singulary, the hotter it gets, and you wuld melt. HOWEVER, if you survived that, you would see this...

You would feel as if you were traveling straight the entire time. You wouldn`t even know you entered a black hole until the moment you died from the extreme distortion. The gravitational pull that a black hole has such an effect on space, it bends it. That`s the only reason light can get "trapped" in it. The gravity isn`t effecting the light, it`s just the path it travels is curved. Because of this, you would see the back of your own head.
