Read Me?...This poem is inspired from a poem I read once when I was a kid...I've never forgotten it! So, I'm going for that same emotional-punch-effect. I think I got it! I'm going to stop editing it now & just get it out there...

It's been a great year
Now we're on Spring Break
Over to a friend's house
Out on the Lake

Parent's are out
Breakin out a few beers
Me & The Guys
Celebratin Senior Year

It's been a great night
Now it's getting late
Time to get home
I'm in a blurry state

Speedin round the curve
Never touched the breaks
I seen the tree
But it was too late

The sounds smashed in my ears
The impact was explosive
I know it happened fast
But it seemed like slow motion

The next thing I know
I'm watching my Mom cry
Actually everyone's here
Over there are The Guys

I try to speak,
I want to say,
"Hey, it's alright,
I feel o.k."

But, nothing comes out...
That's when I realize...
I'm not there with them
I'm kind-of floating in the sky

I try to yell,
I try to scream
"I can't be dead!
I'm only 18!"
