About the Poem

I wrote this poem about a friend who was killed in a car crash. She was only 17 and had a great future ahead of her. Nobody understands why a person with such dreams that she could accomplish could be taken away from the world.

Jesica was a friend of mine and many others and I can't really understand why she was taken away. She was the sweetest girl and she didn't deserve to die at such a young age as 17. I would like this poem about her to be published on this site so that the whole world can know what a great person she was and how much of a great friend she was too.

Death Of Jesica

She lived a life full of honest dreams.
Dreams that only she could accomplish.
On November 22nd 1998 all her dreams were ripped away.
The car hit an embankment, then a pole, then it just rolled and rolled.
We don't know why and never will I'm sure.
Nobody knows why dreams are ripped apart,
or why God takes anyone away.
But everyone knows why she took our hearts right along with her.

This was a real great poem.

I really liked your poem, it touched me. I lost a close friend in a car accident about 2 months ago. Her name was also Jessica. She was a great person, so kind and funny. Your poem was great.
This poem really touched me i also lost my best friend Laura Denise Silva 1 yr. ago on Aug. 13 2005 in a car accident. she was coming home really late and ran off tha road straight into a tree. We will also never know what made her run off tha road. Im really sorry about your friend i know how much it hurts to lose someone so close to you.
Hay gul, this poem is AWESOME i had a friend that was 16. he was the best friend anyone could have. Wel i thought that he was the best person in the world. Wel one niight we were all at a party and were all drunk. When Cj decided he wanted to go and see if his mom was really doin the stuff everyone was telling us! Well I offered to drive i even took his keys but that was no good he had a spare! I have only had 1 beer at this time and promise him i loved him and i would take him. Well Cj didnt want that and said he rather go by himself. Bens to say I went. Wrong thing to do but i told him if he was going to take a chance of killin himself then i would be a friend and put my life in danger also. So we left. we had a wreck about 10 miles up the road. As i set here in this chair tellin all yall young ppl this im cryin like crazy but, Cj was my best friend and im sure he'd want me to share this with YALL!

i had an older friend, he was 17, he came to our classroom and helped out for credit for school, for about a month. Near the end of school we had heard that he got in a car accident. Everyone expected that such a young person wouldnt be taken, but he was, and today marks the one year anniversary of his death. and i understand how you feel. and im sorry for what happened to you, and me, and everyone like us. and thank you for your poem

I just lost a cousin three weeks ago. She wasnt only my cousin she was my best friend. She was involved in a one car accidnet and was only 16. She had lots going for her too. and none of us understand why it had to be her when so many others in this world do so much wrong! I loved your poem. it really related to my situation these days. keep up the great work!
This poem was beautiful
your poem touched me because in 2001 my mum was almost killed from a really rare illnesse that gave me the shock of a lifetime. it's really wierd how you don't really know what you have till it's gone, and it made me realise how much i loved my mum and if i ever lost her i wold die. but i loved your poem and i am really sorry about your friend.
In the poem, you wondered why God would take away such a good person. perhaps He wanted her to not have to suffer on this earth. If you're like me, you believe that God has much more instore for us after we die and I think that's the reason people good people sometimes die. so they don't have to waste on this earth. Hopefully this will be a comforting thought for you. it was for me when someone I knew died.
It was touching
This poem is very insightful. I like how you took the libertty to talk about what you feel.
