I can pick up a third person I can do it, It’s fine Because it won’t be me Oh, the traffic is getting heavier This is the perfect time to snapchat my crush I can do it, it’s fine Because it won’t be me Just got a text from my best friend I’ll just send her a quick response I can do it, it’s fine because it won’t be me Wow, this is my favorite song I’m gonna turn the volume up all the way because my friends want me to I can do it, it’s fine Because it won’t be me Facetime call from Sarah? I’ll just answer it real quick I can do it, it’s fine Because it won’t be me The speed limit 25 mph But my friends want to do 80 I can do it, it’s fine Because it won’t be me But what if it is me? I sit here driving this lethal weapon Thinking I am invincible That it can’t be me That I can’t be that statistic I can’t be that kid Distracted Driving Organization use To make a tragic example of But what if in those three seconds I send that text And It is me And it’s your life I take away Or my life I take away Or my mother’s life I ruin Because in the end The only thing that has the control over whether or not it’s me Is me


Description

Most teens think that they will never be the kid to get into a car accident. This phenomena of invincibility among young people is one that needs to be broken. Teens everywhere live in a naïve darkness, thinking they are incapable of living the consequences of their actions. It is time we realize that the only people who can stop this tragedy is us.
