I Didn’t take drugs

I went to visit some friends. Mom, I remembered what you said.
You told me not to take DRUGS. Mom, so I kept away from those who were ‘hooked’ and instead, I regretted to find some among my so called ‘friends’ who were so induldging. I really felt proud inside, Mom, the way you said I would.

I Know I did the right thing, Mom, I Know you are always right.
Now everyone was leaving, Mom as everyone is driving out of sight.

As I got into my car, Mom, I knew I’d get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me, so responsible and sweet. 

I started to drive away, Mom, but as I pulled out into the road,
the other car didn’t see me, Mom, he hit me like a load.

As I lay there on the Pavement, Mom, I hear the policeman say, the other guy is “high” on drugs, Mom, and now, I’m the one who will pay for his recklessness. 

I’m lying here dying. Mom, I wish you’d get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom ? My life just burst like a balloon.

There is blood all around me, Mom, and most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom, I’ll die in a short time. 

I just wanted to tell you, Mom, I swear I didn’t take drugs. It was the others, Mom. The other didn’t think. He was probably the friend of my so called “friends”.

The only difference is, he is “high” and I will die. Why do people take drugs, Mom? It can ruin your whole life.
I’m feeling sharp pains now; pains just like a sharp knife.

The guy who hit me is walking, Mom and I don’t think it’s fair.
I am lying here dying and all he can do is stare. 

Tell my brother not to cry, Mom. Tell Daddy to be brave. And when I leave this world, Mom, Please remember me in you dearest prayers; as you always do.

Someone should have told him, Mom, not to take DRUGS. If only they had told him, Mom, I would still be around treasuring our fondest memories together. My breath is getting shorter and shorter, Mom, I’m becoming very scared. Please don’t cry for me, Mom. Please When I needed you, you were always there. You always guided me to good, Mom; and I appreciate every bit of it.

Mom, before I say good bye; tell my “friends”, not to take drugs; to admit they have a problem and to seek help. Tell them to speak to their Moms; like how I confide in you in everything. And tell, their parents to support, help and counsel them.

Mom; I didn’t take drugs and I’m proud that I listened to you……
