Was it Worth it?

Mikayla D


Was it worth it? Was all this worth that one text? Was not buckling up worth it? Was “popularity” really worth more than your life? Was changing that song worth it? Was fixing your hair worth more than steering? That text, it could have waited. That seatbelt, it could have saved your life. That “popularity”, it isn’t anything now. That song, it would have been over. That hair of yours, it looked fine. Was it worth it? Was it worth causing despair for your family? Was causing your friends grief worth it? Was it worth losing the future ahead of you? Your family cries for you. Your friends miss you. Your future is now nonexistent. Was it worth it? Was it really worth any of this? No, it wasn’t worth it.


All the tasks that are performed that are considered distracting while driving can wait. My writing explains that these tasks can result in death and makes you think “is it worth it?”
