Treasure Island

Thank You New Bike


The couple that was driving the car was not paying attention,

And the next sound that I heard was a horn and the brakes squealing.

School was out and we were on summer break,

I was on my way down to my friend’s house to play video games.

I just got a brand new mountain bike,

And the bike rode as smooth as a vehicle on a freshly paved road.

I was only like from home to first in baseball from my friend’s driveway,

I looked behind me to see if there were any vehicles.

By the time I looked back my handlebars moved with my head,

The next thing that I remember was me lying on the ground.

The vehicle was traveling at a speed of sixty five mile per hour,

And it sent me on the top of the hood like a catapult.

The car came finally came to a stop,

And I rolled off of the car like a skittle rolling off of a counter.

My friend’s father was outside and saw it all happen,

He said it looked as if I was getting shot out of cannon.

He went inside to call 911,

And he and his wife both rushed out to me to see if I was ok.

I looked over my body to see if it was still intact,

And I looked down at my feet and it looked as if a dog has been chewing on them.

My family arrived at the scene,

The ambulance drove me to the hospital like an airplane.

I was told that my toes were shattered,

And that I had a very serious concussion in my head.

The doctors were very surprised,

They could not believe that I survived such a terrible accident that I should have died.

I count my blessing each and every day,

Because I know that God had a plan for me and it was not my time to go.
