Re: Death of an Innocent

Poster: Mikhail <we4@widomaker.com>

Something to think about and pass on, what with the holidays comming up, and
to consider all year long.

>>>                          DEATH OF AN INNOCENT
>>>      I went to a party, Mom, I remembered what you said.
>>>      You told me not to drink, Mom, so I had a Coke instead.
>>>      I really felt proud inside, Mom, the way you said I would
>>>      I didn't drink and drive, Mom, though the others said I should.
>>>      I know I did the right thing, Mom, I know you're always right.
>>>      Now the party's ending, Mom,  people are 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, so responsible and sweet.
>>>      I started to drive away, Mom, but as I pulled out into the road
>>>      the other car didn't see me, Mom, and hit me-what a load.
>>>      As I lay there on the pavement, Mom, I heard the policeman say,
>>>      the other guy was drunk, Mom, now I'm the one who will pay.
>>>      I'm lying here dying, Mom.  I wish you could get here soon.
>>>      How could this happen to me, Mom?  My life burst like a balloon.
>>>      There is blood all around me, Mom, and most of it is mine.
>>>      I hear the medic say, Mom, I'll die in a short time.
>>>      I just wanted to tell you, Mom, I swear I didn't drink.
>>>      It was the others at the party, Mom. The others didn't think.
>>>      He couldn't have had more fun than  I.
>>>      But he drank and drank and drank again, and now I will die.
>>>      Why do people drink, Mom?  It can ruin your whole life.
>>>      I'm feeling sharp pains now.  Pains as sharp as knives.
>>>      The guy who hit me is walking, Mom, and I don't think it's fair.
>>>      I'm lying here dying and all he can do is stare.
>>>      Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.  Tell Daddy to be brave.
>>>      And when I go to heaven, Mom, put "Daddy's Girl" on my 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.  It'd hurt me more to hear.
>>>      I have one last question, Mom, before I say good bye.
>>>      I didn't drink and drive, so why am I the one to die?
>>>     Someone took the effort to write this poem.
>>>   So please, forward this to as many people as you can.
>>>   And see if we can get a chain going around the world that will make
>>>   people understand that drinking and driving don't mix.  TOGETHER  WE
>>>   CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, so please forward this letter on to as many
>>>   people you know.
>>>   Thank You...
