Not too much could be said;
on this particular day.
The promise of a future so bright;
so quickly wiped away.

I felt like collapsing;
as i stood amongst the people.
But something held me up;
though my heart was probably see through.

So many hopes and tears;
were falling all around me.
But no one said a word;
I guess emptiness had found me.

And, what about my family;
they all stand in a line.
I hope I dont break down and cry;
my nerves are really shook.

It's my turn now;
I look into the box.
What I see is overwhelming me;
I guess i should have stopped.

But, everyone was drinking;
why was it so wrong?
I guess i just messed up;
when I thought I could drive home.

Such a strong ending to a very good poem. The whole first part left me guessing, thats what I liked about it.

Welcome and good day to you. I've practically become addicted to this site, it's so gratifying to realize others feel your pain, and have their own problems. I liked your poem, I'm big on "Don't Drink and Drive" and I hope that this wasn't a true story. Good luck, and I hope you stay awhile.

  First of all I'd like to say Welcome to passions!!  


Second, this poem was absolutely wonderful, I'm so sorry to hear about this!! I hope you have learned what a few drinks can do to a person's life and how truly devastating the outcome can be. Best of luck in life my friend.


Third of all, the poem and message was all conveyed very well in your rhyming scheme, the theme remained through out. Nice work!


  Love Always~*~Jessica~*~

Wow, a really strong piece.  It is amazing to see that this is your first post.  You may have been writing for a long time before you came here I guess.  It's great to see that even though it was a painful experience for you, you managed to hold it together well.  When I say that I mean the poem makes sense and I understand what you're getting at.  Usually when I write about something that has had a major impact on my life, things get mixed up and it doesn't make sense.  You managed it really well.

Love Always,

Just wow, there is nothing else I can really say.  This is a really powerful peace and so open on a topic most people put inside a closet.  Keep your head up and keep up the excellent work!
