This teenager thought he was old enough to do older things without realizing that the most important thing about being an adult is being responsible.
Most teenagers think they have enough experience to drive as they please Until a misfortune happens. This story tells the story of a teenager who learned a hard lesson too late.
The day I died was one day normal as any other. How I wish I had taken the bus to go to school! But of course, it was too cold to wait at the stop … I remember how my mother's car tempted me until I finally caught it. When the bell rang at 2:50 in the afternoon, I threw the books in my locker as soon as I could. I was free until the next day! I ran to the parking lot thinking that I would drive without anyone bothering me, I would be the king of the road.
No matter how the accident happened. I was going too fast, it was kind of crazy but I can not deny that I enjoyed that feeling of freedom and fun. The last thing I remember is the image of an old woman who seemed to be terribly slow. I heard a blow at the same time that I felt a tremendous shock. Pieces of glass and steel flew everywhere.
Suddenly, I woke up. Everything was very calm. There was a policeman right next to me accompanied by a medical assistant. My body was totally shattered and full of blood. Why do you have to see me like that? Why do I have to look into my mother's eyes when she faces the most difficult moment of her life? Suddenly, Dad seemed quite older. He approached a man and said, "Yes, he's our son" .
The funeral was weird. I saw all my family and friends walk to the coffin. Everyone looked at me quite sad, some of my friends were even crying. One of the girls touched my hand between sobs as she walked by.
Please, may someone wake me up! Get me out of here. I can not bear to see my father and my mother suffering. My grandparents were so weak from the pain that they could hardly walk. My brothers had totally lost sight, they moved like robots. Nobody could believe what was happening. I was not able to believe it either.
Please, do not bury me! I'm not dead! I have a lot of life ahead! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. God, I promise that if you give me a second chance I will be the most cautious driver in the world. I just need a second chance! Please, God, I'm just a boy of 17.
