Don't Text And Drive


(5/28/13)

She lost her life while texting that day
And never got to finish what she had to say
“I will meet “were the last words she said
As everyone wondered “what went thru her head “.

Was the message more important than her life?
She was an only child, a mother, a wife.
Because of a “text” family and friends mourn her today.
She should have waited to tell them what she had to say.

Before “texting and driving “you should think twice!
Why take the chance of losing your life!

    An excellent write this is! Putting a cell phone in your
    hand to text while driving is like putting a gun to your head.
    This is definitely a deadly mixture. An eye opener for all who
    read this. Should be posted on all websites. Very informative. (Report) Reply
