Safety poem

I Chose to Look the Other way
By Don Merrill

I could have saved a life that day, But I chose to look the other way. It wasn't that I didn't care, I had the time, and I was there. 

But I didn't want to seem a fool, Or argue over a safety rule. I knew he'd done the job before, If I spoke up, he might get sore. 

The chances didn't seem that bad, I'd done the same, He knew I had. So I shook my head and walked on by, He knew the risks as well as I. 

He took the chance, I closed an eye, And with that act, I let him die. I could have saved a life that day, But I chose to look the other way. 

Now every time I see his wife, I'll know, I should have saved his life. That guilt is something I must bear, But it isn't something you need share. 

If you see a risk that others take, That puts their health or life at stake. The question asked, or thing you say, Could help them live another day. 

If you see a risk and walk away, Then hope you never have to say, I could have saved a life that day, But I chose, to look the other way.
