I'll hate myself tomorrow

Tonight I just don't care

With a bottle in my hand

I'm a careless soul on a dare.

Tempted by my peers

Indulged in a second hand high

Tonight's my time to shine

To fly up to the starry sky.

Stepping on black pavement

Staggering on two yellow lines

The only light is from the moon

Illuminating a glow so divine.

At this moment all I can think

It's so silly to not feel my feet

Then the bottle smashes at the second

The glass and pavement meet.

No one tries to help

They all stand and stare

At a body drenched in blood

My careless soul in despair.

The End
