Choice Of Death!

by Kirsty palmer   Jul 21, 2006


Driving down in the car, it's 95 miles per hour,
I can see the speed, and I can feel the power.
The clouds come over, there is no more sun,
That's when I know that something terrible begun!
The car starts swivelling- going in and out,
Breaks are screeching as the people shout.
The horns are blowing, cars are flaring,
Passers by are shocked and glaring!
The car is still going- it's out of control,
Everything's dark, it's like the black hole!
I can see the lights in front, they are all red!
I look to the side of me, "Mummy are we Dead?"
There is no answer-does that mean yes or no?
The cars still going and then there is a mighty blow!
I duck down, and cover my head, more screeching starts
Why cant we stop? I try to listen for mummy's Heart!
I think I hear fanit beats, so I try to move her,
She wont sit up, she cant drive, not even a stir!
I look ahead, hearing sirens, lights flashing,
Why dont they come over and stop us from crashing?
They're not stopping, they are driving straight past,
I think we are moving way too fast!
I scream! "Mummy wake up.. Please mummy wake!"
Her eyes are slowly opening, as I sit there and shake!
"Stop the car mum, Or we are going to die!"
"Oh it's ok Hun we can get out and fly!"
She's gone mad, she has taken a blow to her head!
Somebody please help or we are going to end up dead!
There is something in front of us again now,
Ive lost focus, cant stay awake- Is that a cow?
No! It's a lorry! "Mum we're going to crash!"
"Mum!...Mum!" it's too late! all of a sudden Smash!
My hands feel wet upon my lap, help there's blood on my hand!
My head is all dizzy, we're supposed to be on holiday! where is the sand?
I cant stay awake, me and mummy are bleeding a lot!
I look out for help, but all I can see is a little white dot!
Rubbing my eyes, I feel much hotter than before!
I realise that it's not over, there is still lots more!
Flames are fuming from our car at the back!
People are running over, and then..'Smack!'
The window has been broken, I can breathe better,
But the blood in my hand is getting wetter.
I feel my head fall back, hearing faint voices,
It's all white, a voice appears, saying "you have two choices!"
Who is this person? I do not know, but I ask what they are,
The person is a woman dressed in white, she looks towards the car!
"Your mum might not make it!" "but you can save her!"
I look back the woman, the whole thing is a blur!
"But you may not make it either-You have to pick"
My head hurts, I don't know what to do! I feel sick!
The Woman is carrying on- going steady, calm and slow,
She says it in sadness asking me questions that I do not now know!
"What will happen to me if I save my mum?"
"You will remain in hospital"I go all numb!
"But will I be OK?" I ask but I don't want to hear the reply!
"We cant help you, what happens, happens!" she said with a sigh!
"I just want my mummy! Why are you doing this to me?"
The woman says I have to pick now, I look over to see,
The car is all in flames There is no sign of mum anymore!
"we have your mum, pick her and we can start her cure"
"However pick yourself and we will have to put her back in!"
Why was this woman doing this to me? is this an evil sin?
"I don't know what I pick!" I just want to be left alone!
"You have to say now, before there will be nothing but ash and bone!"
"I choose my mum!"I scream, tears strolling down my face,
Then there is a massive flash, and im now in my mums place!
My head falls to my knees, as the flames still fill the car,
Im not breathing now, but I can hear voices from afar!
The next thing I know im laying in a bed that isn't mine,
I look slowly to the side, I see mummy- she's fine!
"Mummy" I scream- but nothing comes out!
She cant tell im awake, I cant shout!
There are wires all over me, even up my nose!
There are bags of blood above my head, I lay there froze!
I can not move, and I can not speak,
So this is the new me! so ill and weak!
There's no sign of happiness, not even in the halls,
Im laying in my hospital bed, me, Myself, and the four white walls!
