Everything {a monologue}

Current mood: upset.

Aside from writing music, I love writing poetry and monologues. This monologue is about a car accident caused by a drunk driver that happened on June 28th 2009 that killed four teenagers, two of them went to my school.


I didn't know you.
I never met you.
But you've made me cry countless times.

I remember when you played the piano.
I've never met you,
But I can remember.
You were so good at the piano.

I've never met you.
I've heard your name echoing everywhere I go.
I've seen your name in the paper.
Your picture too, smiling.

About a month after it happened,
I went onto your MySpace page.
The last you logged on was
One day before it happened.

I wonder if my brother ever told you about me.
He probably told you
That I'm the most annoying little sister
In the world.

It's hard to believe that
If one thing were different,
Everything would be.
If you hadn't drank that night.
If you would have been smart enough to call a friend.
If you would have left five minutes later...

When I was on your MySpace page,
I read your comments.
Comments from people who love you,
Who miss you.
Who want you to forgive them.

Some people would rather die suddenly
Than die over time.
I wonder which you would have rather done.
You couldn't say "Goodbye" to anyone.
No one.

A lot of people sort of hate you now.
You took four lives away
Before they began.
And you're the one who survived.
Have you realized what you've done?
The number of tears that have been cried
Because of you?

These comments made me cry.
I cried for you for a long time.
People loved you so much.
You made so many amazing memories
With so many amazing people.

If I could speak to you now,
I would.
I would tell you that,
I rather it had been me,
Than the four of you.
You had a brilliant talent.
I cannot compare.
Not even a little.

I heard you tried to blame
Someone else.
Take responsibility for what you did.
Plead guilty.

I saw some of your pictures.
They made me cry just like you comments.
You were so beautiful.
Raw, natural, beauty.

You don't know this,
But all of the piano students played a concert.
In your memory.
I cried.
Along with many, many others,
As the keys underneath the player's fingers
Danced across the black and white pattern of the keys.
And produced a sound so beautiful,
I don't think I can ever forget that
One moment.

There are five crosses on
Old Las Vegas Highway,
Representing where four innoscent
Teenagers died and one was left
Severly injured.
Have you left a flower by anyone's name?
Have you gone to apologize?
Have you been there at all?

I saw in one picture,
The sky was blue,
The grass was green.
Your blond hair was flowing
Freely with the wind.
And on your face was a smile so bright,
It seemed to make the sun go down.
That image is tattooed in my mind.
The only thing I could think was,
Rest in peace.

I'd like to believe
You're in a better place now.
I don't know if you were depressed,
Or the happiest person alive.
I'd like to believe dying
Is just the end part of life.
It's not that easy.
But it is that simple.

I don't know if anyone can ever forgive you.
You made a choice,
You made a mistake.
It's all over now.

Some people would want to
Love forever.
But we can't.
No one can.
If no one ever died,
How else would we know
How important they were?

Made me tear up....I hate when things like this happen...Just makes you think of all that could happen to the ones you love...the "here one minute gone the next" is the scariest part of life...
