    Behind bars made of steel
    Your home, eight-by-eleven
    You only did a nickel
    Of the recommended seven

    I'm asking you Blue
    Did you do your time constructivly?
    Or were you just another number
    In medium security?

    I'm scared for you Blue
    Scared you'll soon go back
    Cause you about breaking the law
    Runnin women
    Dealing crack
    A criminal mind lives inside your head
    So it's either back Upstate
    Or I'll hear "Blue is dead"

    Boy, you pushing fifty
    More than halfway home
    You think hanging with criminals
    Is better than being alone
    ********

    Please don't ***** up your probation
    Don't mention the joke called rehabilitation
    You got grown kids and Grandbabies
    You need to see
    You got a lifelong friend to call-on in me

    This is a selfish thing
    I don't want you to go back
    I hate coming to visit
    Seeing you like that

    We can hang as we can
    We'll laugh and lie
    We'll sit and remember
    The great old, old days when everybody knew
    The coolest brothers in the city
    B and Blue

    Welcome home,
    BE

    I have read your chronicles inspired by Blue; and I certainly pray he will value his freedom more than give in to his fear of re-entering society. So many times (and I've heard ex-cons say this), they are afraid they will return because life inside is the only life they know ~ the only place they fit in.

    I hope your love and the smiles of his grandbabies are strong enough to bring him all the way back 'home'. And keep him there.

    Beautiful words for your friend, BE. You DO this stuff, boueeeyyy! :)
