Destiny Is In Your Hands Driving distracted with little control 1.35 million reckless deaths Reaching the destination was the goal That’s 1.35 million lost breathes 1.28 million Covid caused Labeled as today’s global pandemic 1.35 million is beyond Compared, today’s pandemic’s inauthentic Safe outcome is determined on our own Responsibility lies in one’s hands There’s lot precautions to be known and shown We must meet citizen duty demands Stay awake, click the belt, stay alert These can’t be argued but only agreed Being safe is learned or you could get hurt Awareness to be shouted and decreed Let’s put phones down and keep eyes on the road Not only for yourself, follow road code
I haven’t offered an amazing, eye-opening solution. In this poem I reference the statistics of deaths globally by year from distracted and reckless driving in comparison to today’s Covid-19 pandemic. In this poem I try to express our own responsibility we have as citizens. To help influence those around us to do the same, awareness is crucial. Many important precautions are taken everyday for preventing the spread of Covid-19. If we made the same importance of precautions for distracted and reckless driving frequent deaths and consequences could be prevented. It should be taught school the importance of wearing a seatbelt just as much that wearing a mask is emphasized. By writing this poem I address the importance of this modern issue. I also express how it is our responsibility to learn these safety precautions as citizens. Many of these precautions seem to be common sense. But the statistics go to show how common sense isn’t that common. After completing our own personal responsibility of learning safety, we then need to spread awareness.
