Soul Touching Poem - Must Read




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 didn'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 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 like a load..






As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,


I hear the policeman say,


"The other guy is drunk," Mom,


And now I'm the one who will pay.






I'm lying here dying, Mom....


I wish you'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,


I'll die in a short time.




I just wanted to tell you, Mom,

I swear I didn't drink.

It was the others, Mom.

The others didn'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.

I'm feeling sharp pains now.

Pains just like a knife.






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 "GOOD BOY " 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.

When I needed you, you were always there.






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?

A very touching poem... Life is sometimes unfair but this poem delivers a great message.

I will not drink and drive...That is the least I can resolve to do..

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Heartwarming Stories
’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,
Ray

this poem is good, the original of this poem in campbell's soup for the soul is better.
