I Didn't Drink, I Didn't Drive

Here I lie
On the ground
It's not my fault
I did the right thing.
Didn't drink
I didn't drive
So why should I have suffered?
Why should I have died?

As I lie there slowly drifting away
They tell me I was hit
By a drunk fool.

I try so hard not to cry
But they slowly run down my face
I try to say three simple words
But I just gave up.

I lie on the rode
Stiff as can be
But it not my fault
I didn't drink
I didn't drive.

My life went
Before I could say good-bye.
The family I leave behind
Not knowing why it was me.
It's not my fault
I didn't drink
I didn't drive.

I woke up one morning wondring if it was real, was i still alive, were my friends ok? IT ended up being a bad dream, but I didn't want it to happen. I wrote this poem to tell people whats going on infront of us that we cant see.
