Hidden Treasures

handwritten letter

I love emailing and texting,
this new way of writing
Its speed is appealing
and very inviting

Though, I cannot deny
how special it feels
when in my mailbox
a letter is revealed

A handwritten note
may not be as quick
yet, the time devoted
can’t be felt with a click

Don’t misunderstand
the keyboard stays close
but once in awhile
with a pen, I’ll compose

Arrive Alive

What else is around the corner
What will come next
from talking on the cell
to writing a text

Shouldn’t we, as adults,
be good role models
How is it possible
if we’re acting like rebels

Distractions come
in different shapes
but taking eyes off the road
may not lead to escapes

So, if you can’t refrain
for your own safety’s sake
then do it for your neighbor
in the surrounding lanes

My son is in Leadership (Student Council) at his high school,
and recently they conducted a week long event,
conveying the dangers of texting and driving.

They had a guest speaker who had lost his high school daughter
because she texted
while driving on the freeway.
Although I don’t text and drive, this alone
is enough to scare me. Whether we’re texting
or reading a text, we create a dangerous situation by doing so.
I thought I would help pass this very important message along
