Terrific Teens

Monday "MADD" ness

Here is a poem a friend brought to me this morning it was originally on MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) e mails

You told me not to drink Mom,
so I had a rootbeer instead.
I felt so proud of myself,
the way you said I would,
that I didn't drink and drive,
though some friends said I should.

I made a healthy choice,
and your advice to me was right.
The party finally ended,
ANd the kids drove out of sight.

I got into my car,
sure to get home in one piece.
I never knew what was coming, Mom,
something I expected least.

Now I'm lying on the pavement,
and I hear the policeman say,
"the kid that caused this wreck was drunk",
Mom, his voice seems far away.

My own bloods all around me,
as I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedics say,
"this girls going to die".

I'm sure the guy had no idea,
while he was flying high,
because he chose to drink and drive,
now I would have to die.

So why do people do it Mom,
knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
like a hundred stabbing knifes.

Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom
Tell Daddy to be brave,
and when I go to Heaven,
Put "Daddy's girl" on my grave.

Someone should have taught him,
that its wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parent had,
I'd still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter Mom
I'm really getting scared.
These are my final moments,
and I'm so unprepared.

I wish that you could hold me Mom
As I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say "I love you, Mom!"
So I love you and goodbye.
