    he was my soul brutha
    best friend like no other
    he and i could truly relate
    we had our share of
    crazy debates
    like
    what made Charlene so great
    and we did the **** children do
    in grade school
    we acted like fools
    and the kids thought we were cool

    he was my soul brutha
    back in high school
    we did the football scene
    together
    he was my boy
    no matter whatever
    and to the end
    we would stay friends

    he was my soul brutha
    back in 1995
    when some crack head
    said it was his time to die
    gunshots rang throughout the sky
    i felt them hit
    one in my chest
    another in my thigh
    one grazing my eye
    as he hit the ground
    his last breathe
    was in blood where he drowned

    he is my soul brutha
    to this day
    he’s by my side
    in his love i abide
    and on his spirit
    i will ride this world
    out to the end
    that’s when i’ll be
    with my soul brutha again

    ~ your still in my heart and mind, C.W.~

    my soul brutha

    I heard brothers speak of looking for a soulmate, well I had to speak peace to my soulbrother. We were good friends from grade school. My family moved away from the hood, but I caught too buses to go the high school with my best friend. To lose him to a crackheads need for a high was ****** up. Excuse the lingo.

    Thank you for the response and the read.
