Never Had I Thought

by Jay Mendoza


I wanted to go to college,

Maybe be a cop.

I wanted a big family,

Maybe even a dog.

But now that’ll never happen,

All because of some fool.

He made a dumb decision,

Thinking he was cool.

He drove me off the road,

Straight into a tree.

My car had split between a tree ,

And they had to cut me free

Never had I thought,

This would be the end for me.

I died that night on impact,

There was no more time for me.

He said it was an accident,

But no one forced him to drink.

I died within an instant;

Drinking and driving killed me.
