Death of an Innocent

Vi håper at dette diktet kan gi ettertanke til dere som ferdes i trafikken!

I went to a party, Mom remembering what you said. You told me not too drink, Mom, so I drank soda instead.

I really felt proud inside, Mom, the way you said I would. I didn't drink and drive, Mom, even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing Mom, I know you were always right. Now the party is finally ending, Mom, and everyone is driving out of sight.

As I got into my car, Mom, I knew I'd get home in one piece. Because of the way you raised me, Mom, so responsible and sweet

I started to drive away, Mom, but as I pulled into the road, the other car didn't see me, Mom, and hit me like a load.

As I lay there on the pavement, Mom, I heard the policeman say, the other guy is drunk, Mom, And I'm the one who will pay

I'm lying here dying, Mom, I wish you get here soon. How could this happened to me, Mom, my life just burst like a balloon?

There is blood all around me, Mom, and most of it is mine. I heard the medic say, Mom, I will die in a very short time.

I just want to tell you, Mom, I swear I didn't drink. It was the others, Mom, the others that didn't think

(He was probably at the same party as I the difference is, he drank and I will die) Why do people drink, Mom, when it can ruin a whole life?

I'm feeling sharp pains now, Mom, pains just like a knife. The guy who hit me is walking, Mom, And I don' think is fair.

I'm lying here dying, Mom, and all he does is stare. Tell my sister not to cry, Mom, tell daddy to be brave.

And when I got to heaven, Mom, put "Daddy's Girl" on the grave. Someone should have told him, Mom, not to drink and drive.

If only they had told him, Mom, I would still be alive. My breath is getting shorter, Mom, I'm becoming very scared.

Please don't cry for me, Mom, when I needed you, you were always there. I have one last question, Mom, before I say goodbye.

I didn't drink and drive, Mom, so why am I to die?
