You don’t want to remember
As you wake up, you remember the saying “Get your license already” Couldn’t it have waited until you were ready? Not thinking about what could happen Raring to be behind the wheel, with your friend by your side Now you’re lying down trying to heal, not only healing, but from physical pain Trying to get rid of the pain in your heart Knowing everything wasn’t worth it from the start You remember the lights Everything is still and cold Nothing was the same after that night You remember your friends You remember the last text Fiddling with the volume button You remember the last laugh Looking at the text your friend showed you Dancing in the car Picking up the phone to change the song And right after that, it went wrong You don’t want to remember that night The night you were driving your friends But having to remember, you being the reason that their life had to end
My poem is about a teen driving with distractions such as, phone use, music, friends and pressure put upon them. I was trying to explain how a driver can put their lives and especially other lives in danger. It could be someones friend or family member in the car with them and they are the cause for an accident, which could end their life.
