"Texting"
So there I am
Sitting behind the wheel of my car
Phone in one hand
Wheel in the other
I can text while I drive
Done it so many times before
I can text while I drive
Just watch me do it.
I can do it
So here I am
Driving down the street
I'm so focused on the road
I see everything around me
Look down to text
Crashed into a man
Only took me ten seconds
Lives were ruined
What happened?
I was in full control
Saw everything around me
Where did he come from?
So there I am
Blood trickles down my face
All because I wanted to text
Instead of wait
Guess I was wrong
Innocent people was involved
Just because I thought I could do it all
So there I am
Laying in the hospital on a bed
A stretcher passes me by
It was that man I had hit
Nurse screams 
I have lost his pulse
He couldn't be revived
Just because I decided to text and drive
A tear rolls down my eye 
I start to cry
What have I done?
Took a life
Because I thought I was that guy that could do it all
Guess I was wrong
Now that family was ruined
Just because I thought I could text and drive.
Author's Notes:
Not about me personally.
Just another one in my little series about bad drivers.

Just ask anyone who texts while they drive. They can handle it because they are really good drivers...Funny...Everyone considers themselves to be a superior driver...len

I saw this episode of Oprah where they were talking about texting and driving. I was shocked!  I must be honest, I did it and I was fine, I am in control ect. The statistics show if you text wile you drive is the same as having 4 drinks and then driving, which is way over the legal limit. It is shocking if you hear the stories. Good, relevant write which happens sadly to often.
