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.
It’s not worth the risk, driving distracted is the cause of many tragedies that could have been easily avoided.
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..?
You didn’t sleep at all
And you know that there’s no way
You could drive around all day
And still be okay
Or when you think you have it all
Figured out and then
Another whirlwind of thoughts
Spins in your head
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
‘Cause the wheel’s in your hand and the brake’s underneath your feet
And maybe just maybe you’ll realize
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

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
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.
