I Used To Be Alive

I Used To Be Alive long poem

Uploaded by muskaan bahl

There was a time
When i used to be alive

That was before the night
I decided to drink and drive

I still remember it like it was yesterday
When for the first time i decided to not do what my parents say

My friends said that it’ll be safe
Urged me to try it for fun’s sake

Like a dumb boy I decided to give a try
To the biggest mistake I made in my life

The whole night we heavily drank
Then decided to make the roads racing track

The air felt cold against my skin
It made me forget my life and my kin

The adrenalin in my veins was pumping
My heart was madly thumping

But everything stoped when i saw the truck
In my throat my breath was stuck

As i hit my head against the window
All i could think was will i be alive tomorrow

The pain was more than i could take
All i needed was to see my parents face

Already know what’ll be on it
That made me overwhelmed with guilt

I was awake but my eyes were closed
Tried hard but still i doozed

In my sleep i had a dream
About the time when with my family i went to eat ice cream

That day a car crashed into us
Being drunk the driver lost focus

It was the last day my mum walked
Without anyones help or support

What have i done
I became the worst son

Mum dad i apologise
You thought i was but i wasn’t that wise

My breaths were becoming shorter
The urge to hear my mum and dad’s voice was becoming stronger

The darkness scared me
Their was no part of my body that i could feel

I made a mistake i could have avoid
And along with mine many more lives i destroyed .
