The day the world shattered

tyler b


I woke up with a text from my friends sayin come to the beach. With little gas, I was unsure if I would even reach. Today was the perfect summer day. Hearing I was accepted to my top school, everything was going my way. I jumped in my car and took off, drove so fast I almost drove on my neighbors lawn. Little did I know, the mother down the road and the child in her stroller were merely my pawns. My phone buzzed and I saw it was from the girl I was dying to get. It was a decision I will forever regret. All I heard was a scream and that was it. That was the day I knew my life was completely split. I wept and I couldn’t even breathe, nothing but some huffs. Next thing I know, the cops slapped on some cuffs. My parents cried with emotions of distraught and anger. They knew they couldn’t do anything, I was put away like a jacket on a hanger. As I now rot in my cell, my life is ruined and my scholarship cut apart like a knife. Never again will I play lacrosse, never again will I live a normal life. As I rot in my cell, I feel nowhere near flattered. Thinking about the day the world shattered


this poem is to show the huge impact something like this can have on someone and how it can quickly ruin their loves. all I ask is that people just put their phones down because someones life isn’t worth a snapchat or a text or a tweet. thanks and have a great day.
