Flatline

Firstly, I would like to thank you for this opportunity and apologize for my lateness in submitting it. This song follows the point of view of a college student who is going to visit her family after leaving her graduating party. However, the trip doesn’t go as planned.

Was it worth it

It’s not worth the risk, driving distracted is the cause of many tragedies that could have been easily avoided.

Just Stop

The focus is on times when it’s only our thoughts that are keeping us distracted at the wheel, even though I mention other distractions as well. A bit of a rough draft, but meaningful nonetheless. Thank you for this opportunity!

 

[spoken] Have you ever had one of those moments when..?

 

Verse 1: 

You didn’t sleep at all 

And you know that there’s no way 

You could drive around all day 

And still be okay 

 

Verse 2: 

Or when you think you have it all 

Figured out and then 

Another whirlwind of thoughts 

Spins in your head 

 

Chorus: 

Just stop! 

Stop what you’re doing, awake from your sleeping 

There’s a whole world in front of you 

Open your eyes, leave those things aside 

There’s just one thing you need to do 

 

Interlude: 

‘Cause the wheel’s in your hand and the brake’s underneath your feet 

And maybe just maybe you’ll realize 

 

Ending: 

That life is worth more than, 

Your makeup, hair, or clothes 

And way way more than 

That song on the radio 

So if you feel that urge to move, just go ahead and stop

And remember that you’ve come so far to just lose it all like that

The Second Virus

This is a poem I wrote about distracted driving, through the lens of a teenager existing in a global pandemic. In many ways, distracted driving and Covid-19 are similar. We must implement strategies and safety measures to care for ourselves and others.

Preventions to avoid distracted driving

More Important Than A Text

Every precious moment with a loved one matters. Driving while distracted could take away those amazing moments and future memories in a second. Spending as much time with a loved one is a gift and should she be appreciated every second. No matter what the task is, it can wait to be completed at a later time, but not while driving. It is not worth the pain to drive while distracted because the consequences could be detrimental to yourself and others. Everyone deserves to live a long life with those they love, and that shouldn’t be jeopardized by a preventable action.

I wanted to simulate a familiar scene (texting) but add a twist to it. All in all, what I was trying to convey is that being at peace with yourself while you drive is better than trying to pick up the pieces of a short life.
