    Unhappy Jenny and the Car Crash; A Sad Poem, and a true story.

    A Sad Poem- Jenny and the Car Crash
    Jenny was so happy about the house they had found
    For once in her life ‘twas the right side of town
    She unpacked her things with such great ease
    As she watched her new curtains blow in the breeze

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

    How wonderful it was to have her own room
    School would be starting, she’d have friends over soon
    There’d be sleepovers and parties; she was so happy
    It’s just the way she wanted life to be

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

    On the first day of school, everything went great
    She made new friends and even got a date
    She thought, “I want to be popular and I’m going to be.
    Because I just got a date with the star of the team!”

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

    To be known in this school you had to have a clout
    And dating this guy would sure help her out
    There was only on problem stopping her fate
    Her parents had said she was too young to date

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


    “Well I just won’t tell them the entire truth
    They won’t know the difference: what’s there to lose?”
    Jenny asked her parents to stay with her friends that night
    Her parents frowned but said “all right.”

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

    Excited, she got ready for the big event
    But as she rushed around like she had no sense
    She began to feel guilty about all the lies
    But what’s a pizza, a party, and a moonlight ride?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Well the pizza was good and the party was great
    But the moonlight ride would have to wait
    For Jeff was drunk by this time
    But he kissed her and said he was just fine

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

    Then the room filled with smoke and Jeff took a puff
    Jenny couldn’t believe he was smoking that stuff
    Now Jeff was ready to ride to The Point
    But only after he’d had another joint

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

    They jumped in the car for the moonlight ride
    Not thinking that Jeff was too drunk to drive
    They finally made it to The Point at last
    And Jeff started to make a pass

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

    A pass is not what Jenny wanted at all
    (and by pass I don’t mean playing football)
    “Perhaps my parents were right… maybe I am too young”
    “Boy, how could I ever, ever be so dumb”

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

    With all of her might she pushed him away
    “Please take me home… I don’t want to stay”
    Jeff cranked up the engine and floored the gas
    In a matter of seconds they were going too fast

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

    AS Jeff drove in a fit of wild anger
    Jenny knew that her life was in danger
    She begged and pleaded for him to slow down
    But he just sped up as they neared the town

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

    “Just let me get home! I’ll confess that I lied.
    I just went out for a moonlight ride.”
    Then all of a sudden they saw a great flash
    “Oh, God please help us! We’re going to crash!

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

    She doesn’t remember the force of the impact
    Just that everything all of a sudden went black
    She felt someone remove her from the twisted rubble
    And heard, “Someone call an ambulance! These kids are in trouble!”

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

    The voices she heard… a few words at best
    But she new there were two cars involved in the wreck
    Then if the other people in the car were alive
    She hoped in her heart the person would survive

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

    She awoke in a hospital to faces so sad
    “You’ve been in a wreck and it looks pretty bad.”
    These voices echoed inside her head
    As they gently told her that Jeff was dead

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

    They said, “Jenny, we’ve done all that we can do
    But it looks as if we’ll lose you too.”
    “But the people in the other car.” Jenny cried.
    I’m sorry Jenny, they also died.

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

    Jenny prayed, “ God, forgive me for what I have done.
    I only wanted to have one night of fun.”
    Tell that person’s family that I made their lives dim.
    And that I wish I could return their families to them.”

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

    “Tell mom and dad I’m sorry I lied
    And it’s my fault so many have died.”
    “Oh, nurse, won’t you please tell that to them.”
    The nurse just stood there… she never agreed.

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

    She took Jenny’s hand with tears in her eyes
    And a few moments later jenny died
    A man asked the nurse, “why didn’t you do your best
    To bid that poor girl her one last request

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

    She looked at the man with eyes oh so sad
    “Because the other people in the car were her mom and dad.”
    This story is sad, unpleasant, yet true
    So young people take head… it could have been you

    This was posted in the "Personal Poetry" section where people post their *own* work, so it has now been moved to the general "Poems, Poets, and Poetry" section.

    One of the few "forwards" or chain letters that I wasn't angry with myself for wasting time on.

    I think drinking is one of the worst things. Crime and vice. anyway...

    It was her fault because Jeff may not of been speeding if she hadn't angered him. She lied, and snuck out. She could of said no, that he was too drunk.
    When ideas fail, words come in very handy.
