    WHY ??


    I try to figure out why this man did what he did.
    How was it his decision to choose if my friend lived?
    Did he even stop to think he was taking someone's kid?
    What about her family and friends?


    I know for me, it's going to take a man of me to deal with all this insanity.
    I remember like yesterday when Shane called and said you were gone,
    I told myself, "Ade don't cry, stay strong"
    but when I broke the news to Lawrence
    I collapsed in his arms.

    What did you ever do wrong?
    So many times we've weathered the storm.
    Thats why it makes it so hard to believe that you're gone.

    When I close my eyes I see your beautiful face,
    mad, yet glad you're away from this hellish place.
    Lord please, help, I need closure,
    is she safe?

    Its so hard to have faith when your best friend is found dead.
    As their friend, thoughts of revenge can run through your head.

    Only identified by the tatoo on her waist...
    Kat..your soul's too precious to ever replace.
    I hope your memory lives on through me
    and people feel and see what I see.
    Through my unique form of poetry.

    Rest in peace.

    Reading your murderer's name in the paper,
    has me contemplating, debating, turning to hatin
    to see you again and patiently waitin.

    This pain, there is just no escaping.
    So I can only imagine how your parents feel.
    I bet the dog didnt' think about that before he killed.

    The anger and pain are almost enough to drive me to kill.
    But two wrongs don't make a right.
    I just hope you can hear me calling out to you in the midst of the night.
    I wish I could hear your voice just once more...cuz I'm slowly losing the heart to fight.
    Please, my friend, give me one sign to show me you're alright...

    I miss you.

    For all the tears I've shed, they dont' make enough tissues. The rest of my days on this earth will be so hard without you.

    One luv
