I went to a party,
And remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom
So I had a sprite instead.
I felt 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 blood's all around me,
As I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say,
This girl is 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 knives.
Tell sister not to be afraid,
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 parents had,
I'd still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter, Mom
I'm getting really 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 good-bye.

this is so sad and touching really...the girl did well and her reward was death! its so uinfair...its a really good quote.... i read it everytime i check my profile coz its my favorite quote!
Hmmm, this is very similar to a poem I wrote and had published in Europe and America many many years ago. This one was obviously written/interpreted by someone else as the tone has changed. Some lines have been changed, and some added, and some are word for word. I wonder who this 'unknown' author is...
hmm this reminds me of how one of my best friends were killed in a car accident, we are in the 9th grade, and we wer both 15... then october 8th, 2009( 28 days after her birthday) i get a phone call telling me she has been in a car accident and has been killed.. when i read this i felt like it brought a memory back to me
loL! this made me cry and im sat in a lesson xD
where did you get this poem?! because i wrote this poem the exact same way when i was younger. i'm the one who created it, no lie either i promise this.
I still don't get it..So you drank sprite then got killed?
i consider myself as a strong human being, when you read this once and understand it you surely will cry, like i did

This is a powerful one. At my school we do somwthing called every 15 minutes. That is to rase awareness of drunk/destrated driving. and then we have this read/said at the assembly.
