Omnipotentthats what I am
With an alcoholic drink placed in my hand.
I just dont understand that Im really not fine,
Or that my judgements impaired with each glass of wine.
Invinciblethats me when Im drunk
I dont realize how far down Ive sunk
Or how completely unaware that I am,
I believe I can do things I just no longer can.
Unaware and unafraid, I bravely drive my car,
Cant remember anything that happened in the bar.
So messed up I think Im fine I laugh cuz lifes a joke.
Though my eyes can hardly focus, I still dont realize
That all the drinks that Ive consumed have made me less than wise.
In my mind I think my driving is just fine,
I cant even see me swerving over the line.
I believe that my senses just arent impaired.
Of the oncoming car, Im completely unaware.
I dont hear the squealing tires,
I dont hear the crashing steel,
I dont know whats going on,
I cant understand what just went wrong.
Suddenly it happensin a moment all has changed.
In an instant life as I once knew it will never be the same.
Too late for me, I pay the price. Pleasedont you pay, too.
Please my friends, dont drink and drive,
PLEASE DONT! I BEG OF YOU!!
The author says, Tims story is so sad. He was a young man who drove one night after drinking in a bar. Life as he knew it ended that night. In a blink of an eye, our world can change. He still lives in a hospital unable to speak well, is tube fed, needs round the clock care for himself. Hes been this way for 17 years. Please dont let this story be yours. Dont let the ones you know and love drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It only takes one time, one mistake, one moment, and life either changes or stops. Dont Drink and DrivePlease. The life you save may be your own or your loved ones...or someone elses loved ones. Please Live. Please Live and Let Live.
