    Over and over I keep hearing the tears in your voice
    As you explain that your baby brother is dead
    Shot to death through his body and deep into your heart in the jungle of big apples lost dreams and wanna be gangsters
    Without asking I know that the finger that squeezed the life from his body as it pulled the trigger and initiated the suicidal sequence through the death of another
    Was that of a man of like hue
    Two mothers will cry as two sons died today
    One mothers baby will be laid to rest next week as the other one dies slowly from the inside out
    He will die of fear and guilt
    Running hiding knowing that it is only a matter of time
    And
    When he is caught he will spend the rest of his life having to prove the very same thing that he once thought the mindless piece of smoldering lead would so eloquently signify

    When he pulled the trigger he thought to remove all doubt of who was in charge and gain a respect that through the twisted thinking in his brain was somehow due
    He hoped to settle the score and be the big man in charge
    Now for the rest of his life he will take orders
    He will be told which side of the hall to walk on and how to walk it
    He will be told what to wear
    He will be told
    When to eat and how long to take to eat it
    When to wash
    When to sleep
    When to work
    When to ****
    And
    How to wipe his but (Without tissue)
    And he will be told when to kneel and when to bend over
    And as he sits and contemplates the wisdom of That one squeeze of the trigger
    He will no doubt realize that he truly missed his intended target
    But regret no matter how heart wrenching Can never raise the dead
    Or dry the tears from a mothers eyes
    His life is over and the only choices left to him now
    Are the choices of the heart and mind
    Because the state now owns his
    BEHIND
    4 life
