    You was just a baby, not long in this world
    The pride and joy of your parents, beautiful ebony girl
    Full of joy, full of life
    Not yet exposed to pain, misery and strife
    Remembering your first words, and your first tooth
    You had the whole world before you
    Until that fateful night
    When your father was holding you tight
    Painful sensation you felt within
    And blood began flowing from your torn skin
    Bullet was not meant for you, but for someone on the street
    Because of the sins of others Death you shall now meet
    Your father begins to cry, screaming oh God why?
    As you look at him and smile before closing your eyes
    Suspects did not get away that day
    My testimony helped put them away
    No chance of parole, but life imprisonment until their dying day
    5 years have come and gone
    yet the pain lingers on
    Mother and father have moved on
    And have succeeded in creating a new song
    Yet it will never diminish the melody of the song that has proceeded on.

    5 years this coming Saturday to be exact. While you're at the prison, I'll be at the cemetary. This was a beautiful tribute, even though it invoked to much pain.....

    chillz....

    how terribly unfortunate
    in this day and age
    angels are send to heaven before their time
    while the evil get away
    still...amidst the pain I know
    THEY WILL SEE THEIR JUDGEMENT DAY
    (God bless this precious soul and her family)

    Thanks to the fam....

    We were at a family gathering when this happened. This was my cousin's child. I was holding her and had just given her back to her father when this happened. But the monsters who did this did not get away....The brothers extreme along with other family members caught the punks outside, didn't even know they shot into the house...and we put a beatdown on them.....as far as calling the cops well.....most of our fam are cops...including the father of the child.....Case CLOSED!!!

    I heard the blast;
    I saw them fall;
    Then there was silence;
    No one moved,
    like the victim,
    like the child
    My heart was pounding
    hard as though it would
    explode at any second
    A mother cries out,
    but, there is no
    understanding
    for her pain;
    It was no man who
    killed this child,
    it was an emotion,
    pure rage and
    frustration,
    grasping at a
    false belief
    it will all end
    with
    a
    blast.

    Watcher and Bishop, my hearts goes out to you both. This happened right before my eyes as well. your piece brought back the memories and i wanted to share that you are not alone...

    the difference? the perpertrators in your situation were caught. it has been 8 years and the case is unsolved. just another victim in an endless war of nonsense...
