Death of an Innocent.

Hello and belated very happy diwali to all.

diwali is, perhaps 1 of the biggest festival celebrated in india, and despite of being a festival of light, every year, because of careless and ignorant fokes, it brings a never ending darkness in to the life of many peoples.

celebrating the happy time together is grate, but please, do take care that your celebrations shouldn’t hurt others.

following is a poem, elaborating this fact in detail.


Death of an Innocent

Author:Elizabeth Beeson

I went to a party, Mom,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink,
So I drank soda instead.

I really felt proud inside,
The way you said I would.
I didn’t drink and drive,
Even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending,
As everyone is driving out of sight.

As I got into my car,
I knew I’d get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.

I started to drive away, Mom,
But as I pulled out into the road,
The other car didn’t see me,
And hit me like a load.

As I lay there on the pavement,
I hear the policeman say,
“The other guy is drunk,”
And now I’m the one who will pay.

I’m lying here dying, Mom,
I wish you’d get here soon.
How could this happen to me?
My life just burst like a balloon.

There is blood all around me,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say,
I’ll die in a short time.

I just wanted to tell you, Mom,
I swear I didn’t drink.
It was the others, Mom,
The others didn’t think.

The other guy was probably,
at the same party as I.
The only difference is, he drank
And I will die.

Why do people drink, Mom?
It can ruin your whole life.
I’m feeling sharp pains now,
Pains just like a knife.

The guy who hit me is walking,
And I don’t think it’s fair.
I’m lying here dying,
And all he can do is stare!

Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.
Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven,
Put “Daddy’s Girl” on my grave.

Someone should have told him,
Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him,
I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom.
I’m becoming very scared.
Please don’t cry for me,
When I needed you, you were always there.

I have one last question,
Before I say good bye.
I didn’t drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die?
