Choices

If I could have changed one thing

I would have changed my choices

I would have said no to the peer pressure

No to the party

No to the drinking

I would have said yes to being the designated driver

or yes to calling parents

or yes to staying the night

I would have said no to my friends.

I might have lost them

But  we would still be alive.

If I could change my choices

I would have had a lifetime of choices to make.

But now my choices don't matter.

Now what I want doesn't matter, because i'm gone

Now my family cries,

my friends cry,

My choices killed me.

My choices killed my future.

My choices killed my family and my friends.

One choice, just one choice

I would change, that one choice.
