Great work of verse. It gets right to the point and it's really
thoughtful. Who wrote it?

I'm goign to write a poem down that means a lot to me. Please comment on
it.

Never Drink and Drive
I went to a party mom, I remembered what you said. You told me not to
drink, Mom, so I drank soda instead. I felt really proud inside, Mom, just
like you said I would. I didn't drink and drive, Mom, even thought the
others said I should. 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 peice. 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 here on the pavement, Mom, I hear the
policeman say the other guy is drunk, Mom, and I am 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 are people all
around me, Mom, and they are really crying. I hear the medic say, Mom, I'll
die in a short time. I jsut wanted to tell you, Mom, I swear 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 drank and 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 its 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 Baby" on my grave. Someone should have told him,
Mom, not to drink and drive. If only they had told him, Mom, I'd 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?" This is the end Mom, I wish I could look at you in
the eye to say these final words..."I love you and... good-bye"

I hope you thought this was meaningful.Keep posting everyone!.

Hehe, the first time I read this poem was when it was quoted on the last
page of "Punisher's War Journal" Issue #3 (published in 1989).

THis is an amazing poem, it is basically about the choices you make in your
life and a time when you had to choose to do one thing over another and at
a later time looking back you think about both choices and realize that the
choice you made was the right choice.

I love this poem so much. I memorized it in the sixth grade and I am now
re-memorizing it in communications in the 8th grade. I thought it was a
cool and warm sense on the trail you less traveled by. I made a poem
before. Are you single. I love you

When I read some of the comments for this poem, I was appalled and
disgusted. I would just like to say that in the honour of Robert Frost,
sometimes the road not taken (that includes insulting people and making
rude comments) does make all the difference. Shame on you all for being
like that. This is a place to analyze poetry and share your interests in
the amazing poem. Please don't belittle it with childish immature
comments.

for those interested in getting others interpretations of the poem. I feel
it most simply describes Frost outlook on life. Not only his own life.
This literature remind me greatly of the earlier trancendantalist such as
Emerson, Thoreau and Whitman. As the poems says "I chose the one less
traveled/ and that made all the difference" so essential dare to be
different, be unique and trust thyself. these work recognizes that
following your own path is all the difference

Now as to the argument let us all agree that THE TRUTH is childish while
Will is a cocksucking anal raping gay ass motherfucker.

Cheney Middle School 8th grade got to memorize The Road not taken By Robert
Frost. Then we got to say it out in front of our blocks. Mrs. Voth is are
communications teacher, and she lets us memorize Robert Frosts poem.
The poem is such a pretty poem
