Your actions

Billie W


My sixteenth birthday Outside a black truck with a bow Drivers test passed license received All I had to do was go In celebration of my freedom I took to the roads. A 4 way stop A cross now abodes Cause of death? An Iphone, Guilt ridden 40 year old To put an end to this A solution must be found Let us put our phones down Give in to the law meant to protect us Before we fall Think of your daughter, your son, your sister in that car Be wary of your actions Deaths are caused by your distractions.


This is a poem about the dangers of people texting and driving. People tend to think their driving skills are beyond what they are. They never imagine a loved one in the other car. I hope to bring attention to that with this poem. Let people know that their actions have consequences.
