I went to a party Mom,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom,
So I drank soda instead.
I really felt proud inside, Mom,
The way you said I would.
I didnâ€™t drink and drive, Mom,
Even though the others said I should.
I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom,
As everyone is driving out of sight.
As I got into my car, Mom,
I knew Iâ€™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 didnâ€™t see me, Mom,
And hit me like a load.
As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
â€œThe other guy is drunk,â€ Mom,
And now Iâ€™m the one who will pay.
Iâ€™m lying here dying, Momâ€¦..
I wish youâ€™d get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom?
My life just burst like a balloon..
There is blood all around me, Mom,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom,
Iâ€™ll die in a short time.
I just wanted to tell you, Mom,
I swear I didnâ€™t drink.
It was the others, Mom.
The others didnâ€™t think.
He was probably at the same party as I..
The only difference is, he drank
And I will die.
Why do people drink, Mom?
It can ruin your whole life.
Iâ€™m feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.
The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,
And I donâ€™t think itâ€™s fair.
Iâ€™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 â€œGOOD BOY â€ 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.
Iâ€™m becoming very scared.
Please donâ€™t cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you, you were always there.
I have one last question, Mom.
Before I say good bye.
I didnâ€™t drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die?
Someone took the effort to write this poem to convey the message...
"Please do favor by not mixing- drinking and driving".
