It Wasn’t Just Us

I went for a drive with my friend, It was going great and I didn’t want the day to end. We were singing along to music, but then she looked at me. We were having such a good time that I didn’t even see, she had ran the red light, swerved, and we hit a tree. Then after all the ruckus, I noticed she made a car swerve to avoid us. It hit into another car with a whole family inside. I’m pretty sure all of them died. I remember laying on the ground, hearing sirens screaming all around. Now I’m in a wheelchair and I can’t move my legs, and my best friend is stuck behind bars for the rest of her days.


Two young girls went for a drive and were listening to music and talking when they ran a red light and crashed into a tree. In the process they made another car swerve to avoid them, and that car ended up crashing into another car. It is written as a short poem. It shows that when you drive distracted, you are not the only one affected.
