Four, Gone, Conclusion
and post notes and photos about your poem like John Hamilton.
This actually happened end of September north of Toronto. The whole city was outraged. Dedicated to the Neville-Lake family.
Three children and their grandfather died yesterday,
They died all together in a most tragic way.
Moments earlier, they were happily driving down that country road,
When you hear what happened to them, your head will explode.
Another man was driving, under the influence, that's what they say,
He should have made better decisions, before driving that day.
He likely forgot that all his decisions have consequences,
Now he'll spend the rest of his life, trying to mend these broken fences.
The thing is, it doesn't matter how sorry he is sometime later,
The pain and suffering he caused others, will always be greater.
How many times do we have to hear tragic stories like these,
before people who drink and drive are brought to their knees?
For the drunk driver it's simple...life goes on.
For the victims family...they try hard to carry on.
They wake up each day, trying to find a reason to live,
Even harder is...finding the strength to forgive.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DRIVE DRUNK IS A FOREGONE CONCLUSION
FOR THESE VICTIMS FAMILY. IT'S SIMPLE, FOUR, GONE, CONCLUSION
John Derek Hamilton
