Writing is a passion from within, you can write about anything that your heart desires and nobody can tell you that it is wrong.

Loving somebody is like giving them a gun and hoping they don't pull the trigger


Speed,speed,speed the speedometer inching forward,
going faster by the minute.
Being carefree teenagers
living the life just in the moment.
Free and enjoying the summer air
not thinking,singing along with the radio with friends.
One Moment changes everything,
from a great time to a terror ride.

Speed,speed,speed the speedometer inching forward,
going faster by the minute.
Making a sharp turn to avoid a deer,
to lose control over the vehicle.
Everything happening so fast at once,
the car flips three times.

Smashing into the dash,and the side door,
feeling the warmness of blood.
Watch as an older brother tries to protect his younger sister:
knowing he is putting himself in danger.
The crash launching him out of the car:
out of the rear window.
Hear him mumble before unconscious:
"I Love You"

Speed,Speed,speed, feeling freedom as I drive faster,
only in a distant dream,look where it got me.
In the hospital;
speed,speed,speed glory of the fast lane,you are a risk.
People are right,
life is a highway which I want to keep riding down.

I hope people from my writing realize that every moment in which we live does count,because you never know when something like this could happen to you or somebody you love.

PHENOMONAL! I loved the different perspective you took as an onlooker to a broad topic and then focusing in on one example, and then changing your perspective at the end to first person. Loved it.

Thank you i'm glad you enjoyed reading my writing,and i actually know somebody who had to go through an experience like this, she wasn't there,but it was someone she loved,and they were in the car, and she told me and i was able to write this free verse and it is one of those things people don't want to think about when they are on the road, or in the summer,but there is always a chance that it could happen.

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross

I really like this. I like that you take issues that everyone else kinda slides into the back of their mind, thinking they'll never have to face it or talk about it. You confront them and you tell people "this is what happens; don't be the person to make it come true." Very brave, and very bold. Two characteristics of a great writer.
