Drink and drive poem!

I received a mail from one of my friends containing this poem. This is a must read for all of us, especially for those who think that they are insulated against any kind of accident when they drink and drive and that bad things happen only to others. Do read it and make sure that all the people you know (esp. your loved ones) dont commit the same mistake. Because, human life is too valuable to be wasted like this! Read on....


I went to a party,
And remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom
So I had a sprite instead.

I felt proud of myself,
The way you said I would,
That I didn't drink and drive,
Though some friends said I should.

I made a healthy choice,
And your advice to me was right,
The party finally ended,
And the kids drove out of sight.

I got into my car,
Sure to get home in one piece,
I never knew what was coming, Mom
Something I expected least.

Now I'm lying on the pavement,
And I hear the policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
Mom, his voice seems far away.

My own blood's all around me,
As I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say,
This girl is going to die.

I'm sure the guy had no idea,
While he was flying high,!
Because he chose to drink and drive,
Now I would have to die.

So why do people do it, Mom
Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
Like a hundred stabbing knives.

Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom
Tell daddy to be brave,
And when I go to heaven,
Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.

Someone should have taught him,
That it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had,
I'd still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom
I'm getting really scared.
These are my final moments,
And I'm so unprepared.

I wish that you could hold me Mom,
As I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say,
"I love you, Mom!"

So I love you and good-bye.

What a poignant poem! It looks as if it had come straight from the heart of a dying victim! Hope the people who do this come to their senses and see the havoc their pleasure has created. Hey! If somebody wants to have a drink, that is their wish because it is their life and they take the choices. But please don't drink and drive because nobody has the right to put another life in danger, much less his own.
