You Died Today (Texting & Driving)

You Died Today (Texting & Driving)

A Poem by SmileBig :)
"

Don't text and drive...please.

"
You died today 
Texting "hey" 
You crashed your car 
Texting "where r" 
You suffer injuries 
Texting "meet me" 
You suffer memory loss 
Texting "we lost" 
You looked down to read 
And In front of you, you didn't see, 
A bicycle and a guy, 
The man you made die. 
You typed on your keyboard, 
Just one word, "sure" 
That was the last text you sent. 
Cause in a second you were dead. 
You looked away and laughed 
And sent a message back. 
Then you flipped your car, 
Now your legs a metal bar. 
You rode as a passenger, 
And flew head first, 
Into the windshield 
Youll never heal. 
You died today, 
By simply saying "hey"

It's not supposed to be funny.
I fully support the laws about not txting while driving. I never will. 1 I don't want to die and 2 I don't want to mess up my car! XD but yeah it was a great poem

Very good and so true. People really shouldn't text and drive... but they never really think of the consequences do they?

Oh that's to true. I hate seeing people texting and driving, as well as talking on their phones. I get scared driving next to them too. If I'm ever driving and I get a text I get someone else to answer it if I can. But it's never that hard to just pull over for a minute. You really got the message across in the poem, in quite a dramatic way and you showed some of the harsh consequences. It was really nicely put together. But it's so true, which is the really said thing in it all. The last line just said it all, right there. All the simpleness of it but the horrible way it could end. Great poem, and such a strong message.

So true. I have always wondered why people do that in the first place. Just wait.

I hate people who text and drive or even on the phone while driving, it's too distracting and dangerous. Hope you write more, I'll be reading more ^_^
