    They brought forth words
    Born in my soul
    Nurtured in my heart
    Processed in my brain
    Their names to the world…
    Heartbeat, Prajectz, and Mr. Spain

    They shared the same pen
    Same paper
    Same ink
    Expressing to strangers
    How I feel
    How I think

    Poetic messengers
    Not one, not two, but three
    Triplicate scribes
    Representing me
    Truthfully
    Sometime painfully
    And even when not skillfully
    Always passionately

    Thank you for a job well done
    You’ve caused a few smiles
    You’ve caused a few tears
    Generated thought
    With the lessons you taught

    I’ll never forget you
    Each as the other
    The other the same
    Goodbye my internal brothers
    Heartbeat, Prajectz, and Mr. Spain
