I Thought I Knew
I told myself I would never… Never look at that phone When I should be looking at the road. I know about the tragedies, deaths, and heartbreaks. I do not have the right to take… that chance. Having the passengers’ lives in my hands, I know the safe route to go, but do not follow it anyway. I know one second could change everything. I have seen it a million times before. How long will it take me to learn my lesson After I shut my car door? This is what I told myself, Before tragedy struck. Before my brother’s car was in a tree, stuck. I learned my lesson in the most terrible of ways, And I vowed to never text and drive For the rest of my days.
