    the corner of the dead

    everything that s dead
    can t be buried
    like those junkie zombies
    that stand on the corner
    at that korean store

    and it all seems so unreal

    how can that dope man
    sleep at night
    without a fight with his conscious
    cause he puts death-dope in their hands

    but there s no gun to his head

    and why do we scream say
    ‘i got to get my life together’
    cause everyday you dying
    i m dying
    while some are breathing dead

    waiting on the next day to fall
    from the blue skies

    and god must be an extreme lesson
    in diversity
    because he she sees it all
    and so many sad stories are life
    or death and go untold

    oxygen don t mean ****
    to them i bet
    when they can t get that hit

    i wonder do they them junkies wake up
    some mornings
    and just thank god for the day

    or does death greet them
    with that urge
    that want
    to be dead but breathing

    seasons change
    and i pass death by
    those dead ones who stand
    on the corner of that korean store

    and so many smart dead folks
    probably think
    that they are worthless

    but that was someone s baby
    brother sister mother father
    or friend

    but death has a way
    of killing us all
    i want to be dead in thought
    on days like this

    but i can t get a hit of sanity
    and ain t nobody selling that ****

    if they did i d probably be
    on that same corner
    at the korean store
    trying to get me a fix

    i m dying
    trying to complete death

    sadly this is an everyday routine for so many..

    wakin up thinkin about where their next hit is comin from and wonderin how soon they can have it..

    "while some are breathing dead"..is a perfect description...
    painfully real..
