Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 After the Monies Gone -An exerpt-
What had been the crew

was 11 men strong

we would laugh ,we would joke

we'd party all night long


we would act like a menace

But those days are gone

Just memories of the lives that are now finished

11 young men

We hung tough as could be

Now to this day

The 11's now just 3

The first one was a hard thing to swallow

It was too close to home

and my thoughts were just hallow

Then 2 and 3 came in succession,

one shot at his home

The other

Made the highlight section

Not only was he stabbed,

but shot and burned

left in the trunk of his car

his tough lesson learned

2years later then comes number 4

killed, shot 7 times

outside mamas door

By the time of 8 and 9

It was business as usual

I grew tired of mourning/pain

I grew tired of funerals

See we all did our dirt

I know I did my share of mine

I did it all but was jus fortunate to have survived

But a thought occured to me

Hit me like -QUICK-

Why the hell am I still alive?

O SHYT!!!!!
