It only takes 5 seconds so I pledge to not text and drive because… A child could be on their way to school Friends could be wanting to have fun at the pool A normal day is all they could hope for Instead blood fills the concrete floor I don’t want to be the destruction to someone’s family The idea of loosing them and personal sanity I rather stay alert than text for the potential of getting hurt If I look down at my phone to read the message “Are you here yet?” Then my reply becomes the biggest threat My future is on the line every time I drive A day could occur when kids are playing in a driveway The ball rolls into the street and to my dismay I push on the brakes as hard as I can I take a gasp of air and know that I am Still alive because my phone was on silent…
