Truckers Be Aware

Riding my bike, hair and helmet to the wind,
I was going to visit a dear ol friend,
A trucker turned that curve dragging me to the ground,
he was not paying attention to the other drivers around
2and1/2 miles later appeared my angel in disguise,
making the driver pull over, making him aware and wise
My life was battered by this mistake so great,
leaving me to wonder what was to be my fate,
Call the ambulance; for, I need one now!
How could this happen Lord, please, tell me how?
I lay still on the ground broken and torn,
I hurt so bad; Lord, It even hurt to mourn
Ambulance carried me away on a stretcher, sirens and lights ablaze,
I barely had a memory; for, everything was like a maze!
Motorcyclists are human; so, please be aware,
Enter and exit interstates with caution and care!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have a friend that was dragged 2 1/2 miles by a trucker that used no caution entering an interstate for other folks around him.He broke my
friends bones and really hurt him severely. He also let the insurance
run out on his truck before he hurt this friend.
A very unfortunate day for all involved. My friend was in hospital over 7 mos.He was lucky to live through that truckers lack of caution and care for other drivers around him.

In a way this friend is a hero to me. he is definitely a survivor

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
