Why Do People Drink and Drive?
A poem for people who think it's okay to drink and drive
I went to a party and I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, so I drank soda instead.
I felt really proud inside, just the way you said I would.
I didn't drink and drive, even though the others said I should.
Now the dance is over, as everyone drives out of sight.
As I got in my car, I knew I'd be okay.
Because of the way you raised me, I'm as sober as the day.
I started to move away, but as I pulled out of the drive,
The other car didn't see me, and it hit me in the side.
As I lie on the pavement, I heard the policeman say,
The other guy is drunk, and now I'm the one who'll pay.
As I lie here dying, I think, I wish you'd get here soon.
How come this happened to me now, my life burst like a balloon.
There is blood all around me, and most of it is mine.
I hear the paramedic say, that I'll die in a very short time.
I just want to tell you, I didn't drive and drink.
I'm sure that many others, just didn't stop to think.
I'm sure I saw this man at the same party as I
The only difference now is he's fine and I must die.
Why do people drink, it can ruin your whole life.
I'm feeling sharp pains now, pains just like a knife.
The driver who hit me is walking, I don't think that's fair.
I'm lying here dying, and all he can do is stare.
Tell my brother not to cry, and tell daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, put some flowers on my grave.
Someone should have told him, not to drink and drive.
If only they would have taken time, I would still be alive.
My breathing is getting shorter, I've got pains in my chest.
Thanks for sticking by me, I know you did your best.
I do have one last question, before I have to say good-bye,
I didn't ever drink and drive, so why am I to die?
We've finally reached the end, I wish I could look you in the eye,
To say these final words, Mum, I love you and good-bye...
