    This is a poem I wrote after me and my 2 housemates nearly ended up in a car accident due my friend being tired. Was a scary moment, and although I was relieved, there is still something inside me that wishes we hadnt of avoided it. Though it would have endangered their lives, not just mine, and I could never live or die knowing that.

    Headlights shining in the dark,
    The streets are empty, no life to mark.
    A foot on the pedal, a hand on the wheel,
    Along a winding road, in a world surreal.
    ~~~
    In the midnight hours, a body so tired,
    Eyes are heavy, a bed so desired.
    A moments rest, can do no harm?
    But this is wrong, it should sound alarm.
    ~~~
    The car is drifting across the road,
    Something the stars could not forebode.
    Headlights shining in the dark,
    A warning to be seen, an exclamation mark.
    ~~~
    A minute from impact, maybe a second,
    Three lives to be taken, the moment heaven beckoned.
    A screech of the tyres, it wasn’t meant to be,
    Eyes are wide, suddenly alert to see.
    ~~~
    A tragedy avoided, three lives still to live,
    Their meaning revived, still so much to give.
    Our guardian angels to protect and serve,
    The precious gift of life, the stars preserve.​
