    This is not as much poetry as it is a release of feelings................... :crying:

    as I write and watch the tears fall down my face
    mirrored reflections of depression flodded my space

    sad songs and sad verses bring unbearable feelings that makes my heart so revealing.

    It's hard when you havent seen somone in soo many years and the next time you see them is because they ended their years here.
    Dam why must there be so many tears here? I can bearly see straight because of them I guess it's because of the pain I have because of him

    leaving not soo soon but leaving sooner than I thought
    but now you don't have to deal with the pain of the vietnam war you fought. :bazooka:

    No more nightmares of deeds unspoken upon your return :uzi:
    no more pressures of a family being unconcerned

    Just watch over your son Ricky he needs you there in your spirits embrace
    He's trying but im seeing reflections of your past in his face. :oops:

    Im filled with such emotion and no direction within
    lines in my mind jumping back n forth again :jumping:

    man I love you ain't no shame in that :heart:
    selfish in thoughts because I want you back :cry:

    bact to things over and be a better nephew and friend
    You were always family but i was so young in dumb when our friendship began.

    I rember you knocking at my door with your Bible in hand :book:
    trying to spread the word to me and my clan :teach:
    man oh man, can I have them days again?
    Seeing the life in your eyes and the pain within
    reaching out but we didnt notice the crys just the sins :nono:

    it must have been hell on earth to live in this world of man
    But no matter what you keep and cherrished the footsteps in the sand.

    Now where was I when you wer sleeping under the bridge? :boring:
    Was I too concerned with myself to off or give? :censored:
    I ain't **** in that respect because I showed no respect :nono:
    I just showed mad rejection like I didn't give a heck. :confused:

    i know you never looked down on me in theese ways
    But I just wish we had more of those Better days! :look:

    Yes jeasus walks...... You knew this before kanye west did
    You been through soo much **** but you never did a bid!

    Im missing you more now than when you were here that's because im a sinner and i want my consence to be clear
    I'm human, I'm fragile, I'm a work in progress that wants you to hear

    Richard (Ricky) Aaron Pinkney Jr Rest in peace and let the father heal all your wounds you have been Lifted Above and set free from time served here! :angel1:

    I am so sorry python, for your loss. Your words touched me, they were obviously from your soul. May you find some kind of ease in your day, thinking of fond memories. Yes we all are human, we all make mistakes, don't beat yourself up because of this.
