Death Of An Innocent
(By anonymous)

I went to a party Mom,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom,
So I drank soda instead.

I really felt proud inside, Mom,
The way you said I would.
I didn't drink and drive, Mom,
Even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, 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,
And hit me like a load.

As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
"The other guy is drunk," Mom,
And now I'm the one who will pay.

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 drink.
It was the others, Mom.
The others didn't think.

He was probably at the same party as I.
The only difference is,
he drankAnd I will die.

Why do people drink, Mom ?
It can ruin your whole life.
I'm feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.

The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,
And I don't think it's fair.
I'm 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 go to heaven, Mom,
Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.

Someone should have told him, Mom ,
Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Mom,
I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom.
I'm becoming very scared.
Please don't cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you, you were always there.

I have one last question, Mom.
Before I say good bye.
I didn't drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die?

Without sayin' a word
(One of my late night poems)

Don’t say a word, don’t try to explain
I can read in your teary eyed the words you gonna say
Don’t ask me for forgiveness
i can hear it from your achin' soul

Although what you’ve done Made my heart fell to the ground

Made me soaked in my tears
Run and lost with the hurt I couldn’t bear
I’m sayin with no fear
Babe I can feel you cuz I’m in you, lovin you
Don’t, don’t say you love me too
I can feel it from your trembles touch to my hands
Oh, to say no is the thing that I can’t
Darlin you are my own man

Don't know

Don’t know how can I live if you go away
Don’t know how can I pass that hard day
I even don’t know if I’ll be alive
And if not how can I dive

In my problems without a guide
I always think if that happened
And then when my broken
I tried to leave this dampen
But really I don’t know how can I live if you go away
Sometimes i think with tearful eyes
In my bed in black hard nights
That what’s life??
We leave our dearest persons and never think that we mightn't see them for along time
I always hope in peace you stay
And every day to god I pray
To save you and make your life white and gray
I really don’t know how can I live if you go away

I wrote that poem when i was 13 years old and dedicated it to my elder brother.

Yesterday in the chemistry lab :)

Yesterday the chemistry lab wasn’t like any other day.
We entered the lab as we used to; filled with excitement and enthusiasm, wore our white coats and began to listen to the doctor’s instructions.
He began by warning us that today’s experiments are of great danger and we’ve to be so careful and concentrated more than before because any negligence while using the chemicals may cause injuries like second degree burn and inflammations….. etc.

The doctor continued by saying that if anyone saw white spots or felt hotness in his skin he must come to him immediately to do the first aid.

All of us were stunned and a look of anxiety mixed with fear appeared clearly in our eyes (although guys pretended to be so calm in front of girls :).

When the doctor had finished, all the students wore the safety glasses which makes us look like divers :) and all uncaring about their looks. All began to work so anxious and so careful that they were moving like robots.

Silence spread the lab, all very concentrated and suddenly.. a sound of a big crash; someone has dropped his test tube.
After 5 minutes of silence another crash; but this time the test tube was filled with a dangerous chemical. All the students who were standing among the one who’d dropped that test tube -in a moment- all jumped the same way the goalkeepers jump to catch the ball :)

After that there were no silence yet mess, noise and shouts. Every now and then I found someone hitting me as he/she ran so fast towards the doc who took he/she to the first aid room and after a few minutes the door opened and a pale yellow faced student came outside with a cream on his/her burned skin.

One of my friends who was extremely careful was one of the victims; she wiped some drops of a dangerous chemical that she’d dropped on the side bench with a tissue, after a while she unconsciously wiped her face with that tissue and then a shout was heard.

Thanks God it was a first degree burn and no deformation happened; we still can recognize her (only when she talks :)... joke)
In my way… my coat was the victim it was torned and stained by a chemical that dropped on it.

O’ Lord save me or I’m not gonna get married :)

Avoid pessimism

Sometimes you feel that you are bounded by chains of sadness, misfortune and pain
And that icebergs from all the sides besiege you
Your echo only is the one who answers your screams and cries
So lonely…. And your hand’s chains hinder it from reaching your tears to weep them away
Becoming not feeling yourself nor the people among you
The anxiety that trembles your bosom couldn't be driven away
And now your heart beats and throbs fight together with despair
You surrender and your lids closed down
Alas! Where are you going..NO..there are too many ways you’ve to find
Come on with me, I’m the nature.
Don’t let that severe cold of pessimistic kills you
Breathe again and the chains will be broken by the inspiration of freedom that will fill you
And the icebergs will be molten by your expiration that flames up with your sorrows and grieves too
Open your eyes when, you see green grass filled the place
Raise them to see the flocks of birds swimming in that boundless space
And the sun looks as a golden coin sparkling in an endless sea
Sending its rays penetrating the branches of these wonderful trees
And making this grass adorned with jewelery of flowers that aren't withering any more
And the butterflies dance every as a princess come her it’s prince whose she was waiting for
