impact (early years poem)

by CJ Maleney   Sep 6, 2017


An every day journey
With nothing special planned
The only way things differ
Is it's a different land

We travelled uneventfully
Just taking in the sights
Who would have guessed what was to come
On a bend off to the right

The wagon was the first thing seen
The car was by its side
I started stamping on the brakes
But still we did collide

The impact then the rising
Upon my drivers side
I never have in many years
Feared so for my life

I was the first to reach the car
Of alcohol it stunk
This never would have happened
If the driver wasn't drunk

    So many times things like this happen yet
    there are some who still never learn...good job
    with the rhymes and its good to know that you
    were safe...take care

    Craig, well written, nicely rhymed. It's unfortunate that it had to happen in the first place. Thankfully you weren't seriously hurt.

      Thanks dude but it's not something that made or makes me sad, it's just something that happened.

      Regards
