    I went to a party,
    And remembered what you said.
    You told me not to drink, Mom
    So I had a sprite instead.

    I felt proud of myself,
    The way you said I would,
    That I didn't drink and drive,
    Though some friends said I should.

    I made a healthy choice,
    And your advice to me was right,
    The party finally ended,
    And the kids drove out of sight.

    I got into my car,
    Sure to get home in one piece,
    I never knew what was coming, Mom
    Something I expected least.

    Now I'm lying on the pavement,
    And I hear the policeman say,
    The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
    Mom, his voice seems far away.

    My own blood's all around me,
    As I try hard not to cry.
    I can hear the paramedic say,
    This girl is going to die.

    I'm sure the guy had no idea,
    While he was flying high,
    Because he chose to drink and drive,
    Now I would have to die.

    So why do people do it, Mom
    Knowing that it ruins lives?
    And now the pain is cutting me,
    Like a hundred stabbing knives.

    Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom
    Tell daddy to be brave,
    And when I go to heaven,
    Put Daddy's Girl on my grave.

    Someone should have taught him,
    That it's wrong to drink and drive.
    Maybe if his parents had,
    I'd still be alive.

    My breath is getting shorter, Mom
    I'm getting really scared.
    These are my final moments,
    And I'm so unprepared.

    I wish that you could hold me Mom,
    As I lie here and die.
    I wish that I could say, "I love you, Mom!"
    So I love you and good-bye.

    OH Granny Sue, I cried. That is so sad. I'd never heard that poem before, but I think a lot more should.
    A few years ago in our town right before school started a young guy and his friends went fishing just outside of town. They got out on the boat, and decided to have some beers. Got drunk, finaly {I honestly don't know how the managed the boat in their condition.} got in their car to leave. There were three or so in the car. One of the passengers died when they lost control of the car and crashed. That young man had it all goin for him seemingly. He was going to be captian of the football team and a senior in just a few weeks. He was planing college and everything else. But he died that day. Went out into eternity. The guy driving said that the last thing the boy said was "Slow down Brad! You're gonna get us killed!" The driver came from one of the wealthiest families in our town. Had his life before him, looking forward to it. Right now he's in jail. The family of the boy who died no longer have anything to do with him. He'll know for the rest of his life his friend is dead because of their mistake.
    I have a friend at school who jokes about going to such and such party and drinking. Once I begged her not to go, she laughed it off and said she just wanted to have some fun. I came home crying that day, because I didn't want anything to happen to her.
    One of my friends said once that you can hardly go to highschool anymore with out someone you know dying before the year is over. That there is always someone who dosn't come back. Last year we lost two. Three if you count the child the girl was carrying. She was fourteen, the boy fifteen. I knew the girl, she was a real sweatheart. I didn't know the boy, but I went to see his family. I remember the day we found out the girl died. During announcments that morning at school they called for a special moment of silence because she had died that morning in the hospital. I burst into tears when I heard and sat there thinking "No, it can't be! She was only fourteen! She was too young! Surely they made a mistake!" I cried for the girl who just started life really, and for the little baby who grew within her who would not experiance life. I cried because whenever I'd talked to her about salvation she'd not wanted to hear, and I could only hope sometime before she died she got it settled.
    I really wish somehow it'd get across to some teenagers that some so called fun isn't worth dying for. That just because you're young dosn't mean you're invincible. Young people die all the time. All I can really do about my friends is pray. Pray they are kept safe and that they'd give their hearts to God. May God help our youth to surrender to Him.

    A friend of mine almost died in a car accident after he and his two best friends partied after their college let out for the year. He is such a great guy... though a bit of a partier/trouble maker. His BEST friend died in the wreck... the driver was the dead boy's older brother... talk about guilt :(

    Sepa--my friend--has totally changed his life around...
