A Sobering Poem On Drink Driving


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Had this sent to me recently - it really moved me (and I don't have kids!) Show it to your partner & kids - hopefully it may help them to decide not to drink & drive.

Most of us have done it at least once in our lifetime & been lucky enough to get home safely - not all do. Anyone that reckons they haven't done it are either good liars or a bloody saint!

I went to a party, And remembered what you said - You told me not to drink, Mum

So I had a sprite 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, Mum

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,

Mum, 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, Mum, Knowing that it ruins lives? And now the pain is cutting me,

Like a hundred stabbing knives.

Someone should have taught him, That it's wrong to drink and drive. Maybe if his parents had,

I'd still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mum, I'm getting really scared. These are my final moments,

And I'm so unprepared.

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

So, I love you, good-bye.
