crash hard and broken
glass shatters round
she freezes, time passes
and she returns to the ground
heart aches, back sore
it's just love she needs
but you yell, all the anger
it's the fire you breathe
she falls and collapses
in this puddle of tears
where did that love go
please remove all her fears
stand up, be strong
be a mother, a father
because the moment has passed
please go comfort your daughter

The author's comments:
car accidents are scary to begin with. but they are even worse when all the parents care about is the piece of metal sitting in the driveway.
