I finally got my license could finally drive to school, I finally had my own car hoped the others would think it’s cool. No more riding the smelly bus I grabbed my stuff and ran out the door, So excited I forgot to buckle up I turned my key and the engine roared. I pulled out of the driveway I was receiving a call, I decided to ignore it it wasn’t important at all. Turned up the radio they were playing my favorite song, It was a little hard to focus yet I had to sing along. My notifications were going crazy my phone was ringing off the hook, Didn’t want anyone to think I was ignoring them so I decided to take a look. I answered all my friends my car started to swerve, Other drivers got mad at me one even yelled some bad words. Good thing I controlled my car boy was that close, Then I looked in the mirror my makeup sure looked gross. Even after my last scare I had no choice but to fix it, I reached into my bookbag grabbed my makeup and applied my lipstick. I was singing to the radio, Had to text my best friend back, My makeup still wasn’t perfect, My focus was all out of whack. This time I couldn’t control my car, I had to answer one last text, I thought nothing would happen to me at least not what happened next. I wish that I was smarter, My car sure was wrecked, I almost didn’t make it, My life was now a mess. Maybe if I turned off my phone, Maybe if I buckled up, Maybe if I didn’t care about my makeup, Maybe I would of had better luck. Now I know my lesson, Safety rules I’ll now be abiding, You may think it won’t happen to you, Don’t get caught up in distracted driving.
