1 person dead, hundreds more wounded

119 people put to shame
Only 1 man is to blame
He is the source of their pain
His hands are blood stained.
19 different people put to tears
10 close friends now see the world as a drear
1 person gone
That's what he thinks
But he doesn't realize that when the deed is done,
everything links

Her brother and sisters no longer want to play
They never really wanted this change
Her brother has lost one of his best friends
Her sister no longer look foward to the promised weekends
Her room is now empty, desolate, and cold
Untouched, yet not forgotten, with so many memories that it will always hold
Her mother constantly weeps
Her father comes back, only to sleep
Her friends are all full of sorrow
They no longer look foward to tomorrow
Because, to them, it has nothing to offer
So their families all start suffer

One girl is gone,
thats all it took
one small person left
which made the world shook
No body felt it
no one felt their pain
But its still there
and it will never go away

1 person is dead
Hundreds more are wounded
Because one man decided to drink and drive
But because of one crash she did not survive

119 people all have tears to shed
Just because one little girl is dead

This poem is dedicated to those who have lost someone to a drunk driver. The story here is not true, but the message sure is. Please, don't drink and drive.
