A poem I wrote for Kara Micciche... Kara's Law

Kara’s Law

By Tyler Presnell

Fighting for the causes
And then I think why bother
Death is guaranteed
But the kids will live much longer
If we
Clean the streets
Why can’t we see the problems?
Fathers out there like mine
Should never outlive their daughters
So here’s my story
And I hope you listen closely
I died at 17
Long before I was supposed to
My father
Raised me alone but glad he chose to
Have my little baby brother Yubby
I was close to
My dream as a teen
Was to grow and be a medic
Organ donor on my permit 
Dad I’m glad he let me
After I died
Helped others I never knew
Saved lives with my organs
Keep dreaming they do come true
I died soon!
But keeping my hopes alive
Driver saw me though on drugs
Now Dad has to with closed eyes
So wrong!
People need to speak up
The driver killed me but no test
I wasn't reason enough
We need to change this!
And not by dropping dollars
In a bucket use your power
We don’t need this any longer
Hey World!
My name is Kara
Love music, tattoos and pink
So would you wear some?
I miss my family
And I even miss my friends
I use to hang and laugh with em
But that’s just the way it is
Got killed while crossing the street
We looked both ways!
And the driver even saw me
As kids we’re taught
To stand up and say we did this
Then learn as adults of the holes
Hid in our system
The driver caused me to die
But the laws don’t call him killer
I was a mother to my brother
Who buried his only sister
I miss life!
Three weeks before my death
Asked dad for some money
I wanted a pretty dress
He said sweetie please wait one day
I know you’ll get it
My father kept his promise
His sweetie was buried in it
We need help
If Legislation passes Kara’s Law
Make drivers take credit save lives
No matter where you are
Imagine all the families
Demanding nothing but justice
Hoping I’m the last killed
Nobody wants this.
