He offered me a ride


His smile was inviting, but I told him no


Even though I truly wanted to go



He begged, He pleaded


He told me it would be all right


And I shivered as I thought -It would be cold to walk home
tonight



I knew he had been drinking


I could smell it on his breath


I knew it was a bad idea- drinking and driving led to death



I had heard all the stories


I had seen often the pressure of our peers


But still, I thought, he only had just a few beers



Come ON Clarissa! He said


Just get in the Car!


You are making a big deal, and it’s really not that far



You know I can control my alcohol


I’ve done it before


You know I’ve driven home even when I’ve drink’n more!



I looked at his face, and he looked back at me


I knew he was frustrated and it was my fault


But something in the back of my mind warned me by default



I knew it was the stories


The education I had received


Never drink and drive- they made me believe



Reckless driving is dangerous


And I decided right there in my mind


There was no way I was getting in that car even if he became
unkind



I told him no- that’s my final answer


Now don’t try to argue to my face


You need to get out of the car too, let us just park it at
this place



His look was incredulous


But my decision remained strong


I opened his car door and pulled on his arm



Lets just walk there- I said


We’ll make it there fast I am sure


I really don’t want you to drink and drive- there is only so
much you can endure



He wasn’t happy about me pulling him from he car


But he followed me nonetheless


And in that moment- I knew I had not broken my own promise
