The Limit:

Hadley O


Keep in touch they say Where are you at? How long ‘till you arrive? When will you get here? Be aware to stay alive Music, directions, text messages Bluetooth or aux cord or speaker Hands free driving is a tactic companies use The addiction is real You’ll be lucky if you walk away with only a bruise Other drivers and even pedestrians The world does NOT revolve around you Just because your friend texts or calls One look down at your phone And an angel might fall Off this earth and into the ground How old were you? A teen, a mother, a father It can happen to anyone at any age Make distracted driving a bother ‘The limit’ is a phrase Which should not be used to regulate your distraction The Limit should be none Keep your eyes on the road for accidents ready to occur From the whole time of stepping out of your car to when your engine begun.


This poem is about the many ways distracted driving occurs. Not even for just teens, but for anyone on the road. Distracted driving has become a dangerous move for those addicted to their phones and cannot wait to get off the road to respond. It isn’t that hard to drive fully aware when you realize the next consequence from distracted driving can be death. It has been a sad decade ever since Iphones have come out in 2008. And companies need to realize that using tactics to promote the usage of your phone like “Hands Free” driving is just an excuse for humans to not realize their addiction.
