I hit a child with my truck wihile he was riding his bike.

Unless you've experienced this, you don't know what it's like.

I should've got him some help but instead I hit the accelerator.

The severity of what I did didn't sink in until several hours later.

Sadly that poor boy died later that day.

The guilt has haunted me since he passed away..

I cut that boy down who was as precious as a flower.

I committed hit and run and that makes me a coward.

His family is suffering because of what I've put them through.

I hope and pray that this experience never happens to you.

I know that I'm doomed to pay for my horrible sin.

I can't bring that boy back but I can turn myself in.

What I did was horrific, I had a lot of nerve.

Now I'll rot in jail and that's what I deserve.
