Dead Man's Future

by Lemon Square Bear23   May 21, 2008


It was a late night
He was trying to get home in a hurry
He left everything at home unright
But he wanted his family not to worry

Words he forgot to say
things left undone
words he waiting for another day
burdens weighing a ton

Forgot his brief case
smashed his hand
he knew not the end of his race
that he was about to leave this land

Just a bad day
going all wrong
walked away with so much left to say
but all that was left was a sad, sad song.

For he had no clue
what was about to happen
what he was about to do
what was going to happen.

he closed his eyes
completely dozed out
his family cries
for they wanted to doubt

the man was dead
it was sad to see him go
so many things left unsaid
there is something you must know

life is to short
for things not to get said
there is no way to abort
but you to will be dead

Speak your mind
mean what you say
always be kind
you never know when its your day.

*I wrote this after seeing a semi truck in a ditch, the person driving,no way still alive.I wrote this to encourage you and myself while we still have time to say what we need to and fix things while we can...*

    Wow, really good poem! Semi-trucks are bad news. My boyfriend and I got hit by one when we were going to Memphis one day. He had to get 49 stitches (the truck hit his side). I loved the message in this poem. It was really powerful. 5/5
