Seeing the speeding truck. Hearing screeching tires. Feeling the cars collide. Fear gripped me as my eyes closed. Opening my eyes brought on, the smell of burnt rubber.  The slight taste of blood.

I had a friend, whose name was Sam Sam was always smiling He went driving one day, and then BAM! The car was flying, flipping, and rolling Sam had received a text on his phone

I blink as the warmth enters my eyes
She didn’t even see it coming, The car attempted to slam on its brake, Unfortunately it was too late to start running, Her life, the car was determined to take.
I vaguely remember my father. I was three years old when he died, so his presence in my memory is distant. I view photographs of the short time we had together and the love he showed towards me.
We're going steady, Enjoying life, Working hard, having fun. Wishing now I had a chance to say goodbye. If it was not for that fool, What was he thinking, Texting, Driving,

She's just a girlfull of dreams and hopesimagination as big as texasdaddys little princess
Completely indescribable, the feeling of love. Scarily unreliable and fickle, yet fun. Falling right in, like a push, like a shove. Then she roars away, shooting off, a bullet from a gun.
Aching, screaming  Shortness of breath, Begging, pleading Wanting to cheat death Bargains, promises It will happen no more, If only time froze And would rewind to before.
I, too, once looked like you. Danced without fear To entertain was my goal. Distracted by a distant thought, Describing my favorite movie to a friend, Drove as if the road had no end.

I see your tears everyday and just want to hold you tight,I hear you when you cry in your pillow every single night,I watch you go to work and whisper I love you in your ear,
Icy roads. Car swerves. Screams. Silence.
Death is but once, a journey of lavishness On Earth it leaves a linger of sadness, but in the realm of paradise nothing but gladness. It starts as a dream seeming as reality, driving the care-free into insanity.

As you embark on your journey, To that world so far beyond, I think of you with sadness The girl too young. Your smile is glued to my mind When you would shout as you sang. Why did you go so soon?
You always loved that long-board of yours, you said that while on it you felt you were flying How could you know that a drunk driver would be the end of such flight ? It was dark- it was at night
I swerved, the curve didn’t deserved Collision colossal in that decision Lost my life along with my religion Because I never listened Drunk driving driving drunk 100 on a 60 with liquor in the trunk
My heart is racing. I'm waiting for you, by the door. You told me you'll be quick. The time is growing longer, i'm sick. 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 4. Where are you, my love? Why haven't you walked through my door?
Alive I am Alive yes I am Alive My bones tingle with the energy of life itself The energy of life surrounds me it protects me it cradles me, guides me guidance
Man I’ve been studying all week and haven’t had a break I need some fun and a night out to keep me awake. Instead of the club I go to the gym Then I get a text from him. He won’t be able to talk on the phone tonight
Life would be unbearable without her. Nightmares would rain down, cascading over my dreams without her. Breathing would be cold. Stale. Harsh. Without her.
I knew that when I’d fall asleep, I’d only dream of you. And of the Last rose I’d ever get from the man that loved me too. And when the night is over, I wake up and I cry.
Death, murder, heartache, incarceration The very things teens attempt to avoid Texting and driving The very thing that can lead to it all
I sit in math class, Trying to think, trying to learn, "That party on Saturday, Was so crazy" "She passed out" "They went upstairs" "We had to throw her over a fence, She was so drunk"
This Poem is my everything. If you can, just listen and let me know what you think!
Drinking and driving, sounds like a joke Who would risk their life for a so called joy ride?
Her name was Elena Chubby cheeks, a giggly girl Hardly cried in infancy Discovered dyslexia at age three Her name was Elena Determination, Pursuit Working hard everyday
yellow was the color of innocence the color of our freshman year it was the shade of the v-neck you bought at forever 21, on our trip to the mall yellow, the color of the cheesecake we shared for mary’s birthday
She gazes blankly at the wall, pondering what to do next. Is this her final curtain call? All because of one heartless text?
Angel, you lay there cold, still In that pure white casket. Not a single breath passes from your perfect, pink lips. Your long blonde hair cascades down your back and is a perfect halo around your beautiful face.
She gets to the party around nine, or ten A familiar high school scene, getting high and drunk again Inevitably one of her friends' parents are out of town again
Tears fall like rain on a deathly still face, There’s no hope for her now, she’s in a much better place: A place with no sorrow, a place with no pain Still they clench her hand tighter, scream “Wake up!” in vain,
I can be any color you imagine, any style you want me to be I can take you anywhere to anything you want to see My transportation may be great, but I am dangerous too With anyone's hands at my wheel this is certainly true.
Rolling to a grateful stop, post-passing by the zoo. Or perhaps the better phrase is cutting our way through. Yes Houston traffic is a mess, but craziness aside Ive made it here - to fight anew - the Lord my Help and Guide.
Life is unexpected What happens will happen One cannot changes their fate, but can only accepts it One phone call, one mistake end it all End of the road
I look forward to rolling down the streets at you in tiny plastic cars. But Saturdays can’t come too soon the streets are black, you won’t call back till late afternoon
Just a few drinks they said You’re not that drunk You can totally drive they said It’s okay.
The night is slowly coming to an end. Everyone is leaving, He only lives right around the bend. No one notices what he’s about to do, He left quick, Before they could think it through.
“The faster you go, the safer you’ll be,” They all will say; But they don’t know the price you will pay. Down the mountain, In the dark, Perhaps after the race Under the dirt is where you will park.
It was dark, the road was wet where are you was all it read you check your phone like it’s no big deal not seeing the danger in the nearby field the deer runs out and your try to swerve

Poem to Promote Safe Driving You are dead. I am not. You should not be dead. I should be dead. It’s my fault. My fault I texted on I-79. Of course, it’s a closed casket today. No one wants to see.
A crawling crack in the cold ice, a minor flaw The water below, bursting, seeping through the breaking jigsaw Creaking and shrieking, the sheets of water cried as they were leaking
The phone will rattle in your cup holder, knock around spare change. Do not take your hands off the wheel. Do not pay it mind. You know it will be your friend or your boyfriend or your mother,
He never once thought... "It could happen to me." It was always the other; the guy you see standing shocked, by the roadside, with eyes unbelieving.
"Wanna try?" my friend, Megan, asked me, in a slurred voice. She handed me her drink and before I could answer, she ran over to her friend's Rolls- Royce.
Tombstone Unending Sorrow Drinking, Driving, Crashing, A river of tears Coffin
Cold air blows upon my pale face. Where am I? It's white its lonely What is this place? I rise to find im in a hospital bed. Braces on my arms cuts on my skin
You’re swaying and swerving Lurching, and slurring, And driving. Down old country roads, Through towns we don’t know, And you’re swerving. The radio’s blaring, and everyone sings.
If I could text you from the other side, There would be only one thing to say, Live your life one day at a time and Never text and drive. My message from the other side Is that life can be short and sweet,
It was dark, the road was wet where are you was all it read you check your phone like it’s no big deal not seeing the danger in the nearby field the deer runs out and you try to swerve

Mommy said it's time to go. But mommy, mommy I must let you know. What is it sweetheart, what must you say. Mommy mommy, I just want to stay. But darling, darling, it's time to leave.
