JUST ANOTHER THOUGHT

death of an innocent

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.
 
 

Why do people drink, Mom?
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?

  3. Hmmm … Tabassum … I was kind of hoping you would write stuff yourself and not share with us what already exists on the net. I want to read what you write. And this time try to be a little more formal and not shorthand or slangs.
