    A beautiful face erased,
    his soul torn from him and, not yet, replaced,
    his life journey, so far, by savior hands, not graced.

    The tragedy, not over, still.
    Deep pain eroding the strength of his will.
    He's become sullen, lost and unfullfilled.

    His heart stolen and bruised,
    offered to many; taken and used,
    his inner being, tragically, abused.

    The strength of his swift demise
    has left his life vile and compromised.
    Now, one only sees agony
    resting in his lost empty eyes.

    He asks of the wise,
    will this awful misery
    in his life ever subside?

    I ask of him to, one day, come to realize
    the reasons for the gift of his beautiful life
    and learn to live it without holding onto bitterness and strife?

    (This was written for a dear friend who got lost along the way to his dreams with my help I pray he finds his way)

    It's There

    he can find it,
    if he c's the light.
    but we musn't 4get,
    that we all live our own life.
    give him credit,
    where credit is due.
    guide him along the way,
    but always remain true.
    like 1poetsought said,
    pray works.
    it ain't all butterflies,
    sometimes it hurts.
    but if we give folks their confidence,
    that they really need.
    then maybe that way,
    they can strive 2 succeed.
    don't give up on him,
    and i know that u will not.
    we all make mistakes,
    it's a bad micro chip that we all got.
    we disfunction,
    and sometimes fail.
    but with help from others,
    we're bound to get well.
    so once again,
    a great poet has started a journey of poetry.
    and i'd just like to say,
    love is always here 4 u--at destee.....................(loved yo flow):toast:
