Texts and Wrecks

Hannah M


Never saw it coming. Never thought it’d be me. I was blinded by pride. And now I can see. I should have just waited. Just put the phone down. I really should have held off. My mind is opened now. To go back in time. To undo my wrong. I should have just waited. I knew all along. But now it’s too late. I can’t make it right. I made the choice. My guilt I’ll now fight It wasn’t worth it. Not in the least. I nurtured a monster. And created a beast. I stole from him What I took was his soul. All simply because, I texted and drove. So, dear reader and texter Just take it from me. The effects will cost you So be sure to take heed: When your mom tells you never to text while you drive It isn’t about cruelty or a way to deprive Of you having fun or you being cool. It’s all a reminder of how much you will lose.


I feel that people don’t take texting and driving serious enough. This is an issue that I am extremely passionate about. As I have recently begun to drive myself, I see even more how foolish it is to text while handling a deadly weapon. So, I chose to focus on fleshing out the thoughts of someone who was the cause of a death-due to texting while driving. I hope this will make someone think twice before picking up the phone and the consequences that can occur.
