Drunk Driving

August 26, 2008
By Rae Chaloult, Rochester Hills, MI

Water waves move some sand,
While a little girl is crying,
Some may think it's for some silly thing,
But is it really?
As tears fall down her cheeks she's reminded why she is here,
Her Mum and Dad are gone from this world through know fault of their own.
They were killed by reckless driving,
From the fault of a man that had to many drinks.
Tears of anger are fading and in their place is grief,
She vows to show others the horrors of drinking and driving.
For no one should suffer her pain.


(Dedicated to all those that have died or lost a loved one from drunk driving.)
