 My today's thoughts

CONSEQUENCES  




  
  





CONSEQUENCES

Swift was the speed we  drove
Grass and trees traveling faster than my site
The wind blowing my hair across my face into my eyes
We were close to flying - Feeling an exquisite sense of excitement

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There stood out of nowhere a deer in the middle of the road
The sound of brakes being thrown on
 A bloody mess lay in a heap
Lights hanging from their brackets
blood and gore everywhere
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Conscious of what had happened
filled my soul with remorse
Life for the taking was not mine to chose
That night we learned a new rule

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is our choice what path we choose
Life is precious - the sum of our days are few
Being carefree is one thing - being careless  is another
There are consequences for our actions
A price to pay for our foolishness
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Those days of - if only - still hide in my mind
If we could go back and redo time
Would we really change
I am thankful no one was hurt that night
It began to rain washing the blood away
I will remember the sounds and smells of that night
forever and a day
