“Why Me..?” – A nice poem

Posted: January 11, 2008 in Save PLANET!, Thoughts

I went to a party Mom,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom,
So I drank soda instead.

I really felt proud inside, Mom,
The way you said I would.
I didn’t drink and drive, Mom,
Even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom,
As everyone is driving out of sight.

As I got into my car, Mom,
I knew I’d get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.

I started to drive away, Mom,
But as I pulled out into the road,
The other car didn’t see me, Mom,
And hit me like a load.

As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
“The other guy is drunk,” Mom,
And now I’m the one who will pay.

I’m lying here dying, Mom….
I wish you’d get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom?
My life just burst like a balloon.

There is blood all around me, Mom,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom,
I’ll die in a short time.

I just wanted to tell you, Mom,
I swear I didn’t drink.
It was the others, Mom.
The others didn’t think.

He was probably at the same party as I.
The only difference is, he drank
And I will die.

It can ruin your whole life.
I’m feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.

The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,
And I don’t think it’s fair.
I’m lying here dying
And all he can do is stare.

Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.
Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom,
Put “Daddy’s Girl” on my grave.

Someone should have told him, Mom,
Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Mom,
I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom.
I’m becoming very scared.
Please don’t cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you, you were always there.

I have one last question, Mom.
Before I say good bye.
I didn’t drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die?

Someone took the effort to write this poem. Please, spread this to as many people as you can. And see if we can get a chain going around the world that will make people understand that drinking and driving don’t mix.

    Diese werden jedoch nicht sehr bestreiten, daß jeder angesichts der
    zahlreich aufgetretenen Grippefälle auch in Deutschland welche Sch – Hugo Sekt grippe nicht mit die „leichte Schulter” nehmen soll auch die jedoch nicht alles nur Panikmache war. Corder ausfindig gemacht besitzt, findet sich in Italien jetzt wieder. Dezember 2010 – Welche Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Union eine große auswahl für sich in Brüssel auf neue Kennzeichnungsvorschriften fuer Hugo Sekt geeinigt.
