Poem Against Drunk Driving

This is the sad poem that a lot of people search for. It’s
our understanding that this sad poem is titled “Death of an Innocent” or “Mom“.


I went to this party mom

I remembered what you said

You told me not to drink mom

So I drank soda instead.


I felt real proud inside mom

The way you said I would

Even though all my friends mom

Told me that I should.


I know I did the right thing mom

I know your always right

The party’s finally ending mom

As everyone drove out of sight.


As I got inside my car mom

I knew I’d get home in one piece

‘Cause the way you made me feel mom

So responsible so sweet.


I started to drive away mom

As I pulled into the road

The other guy didn’t see me mom

And hit me like a load.


I lay there on the pavement mom

I hear the policeman say

The other guy was drunk mom

Now I’m the one to pay.


I’m lying here dying mom

I wish you’d get here soon

How come this happened to me mom

My life bursted like a balloon.


There’s blood all around me mom

Most of it is mine

I hear the paramedics say mom

I’ll die in a short time.


He didn’t know where he was going mom

He was probably at the same party as I

There’s one big difference though mom

He’s going to live while I die.


Why do people drink mom

It can ruin your whole life

I’m feeling sharp pains mom

Just like a burning knife.


The man who hit me mom

Is walking, it’s no fair

I’m lying here dying mom

While all he does is stare.


Tell my brother not to cry mom

Tell dad to be brave

For when I’m in heaven mom

Write my name upon my grave.


Someone should have told him mom

Not to drink and drive

If they’d often take the time mom

I’d still be alive.


My breath is growing short mom

I’m becoming very scared

Please don’t cry for me mom

‘Cause when I needed you, you were there.


I have one last question mom

Before I say good-bye

I didn’t even drink mom

So why am I the one to die.


This is the end mom

I wish I could look you in the eye

To say these final words mom
