God's Gift And A Fool

All wrapped in your shell
Of leather and steel
Your invincible armor
Or so it might feel
Pass on the right
Speed as you go
Blow by the light
Save a minute or so

Is that your child
Smiling in the back seat?
Is your time so important
Your destination so sweet?
Plastic , blood, leather and steel
Your armor is flawed
Your shell is not real

Keep this in mind
When you sit at the wheel
Cars can be fixed
But death can't be healed

This couldnt be more true! Every one with a lead foot or a finger that likes to show to much should read this! The author of this is a very wise person and should be reconised!

Great job John. People should really read this poem. It shows how careless people can be, by putting other people's lives in danger, just to save a few minutes, like you said. God has granted you a wonderful gift, and I pray that you'll go far. God bless you.
