I went to a birthday party
But I remembered what you said
You told me not to drink at all,
so I had Sprite instead
I felt proud of myself,
the way you said I would
that I didn't choose to drink and drive
though some friends said I should
I knew I made a heathly choice and
your advice to me was right
as the party finnally ended
and the kids drove out of sight.
I got into my own car
sure to get home in one piece
never knowing what was coming
something I expected least
Now I'm lying on the pavement
I can hear the policeman say,
"the kid that caused this wreck was drunk"
his voice seemd far away
My own blood is all around me
as I try hard not to cry
I can hear the paremdeic say
"this girl is going to die"
I'm sure the guy had no idea,
while he was flying high
beacuse he chose to drink and drive
that I would have to die
So why do people do it
knowing that it ruins lives?
But now the pain is cutting me
like a hundred stabbing knives
Tell my sister not to be afraid
Tell Daddy to be brave
and when I go to heaven to
put 'Daddy's Girl' on my grave
Someone should have taught him,
that it was wrong to drink and drive
Maybe if his mom and dad had
I'd still be alive
My breath is getting shorter,
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 and good bye.


I got this poem from Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul. It's sad, isn't it?
