Why Murder?

March 19, 2010
By , Denver, CO
16 years.
My life full of tears.
By ringing bullets.

Left my cousin
dead in his blood.

But I wonder
Why in my neighborhood?
I thought when I got older things were better?


Not For Me.
Why it have to go down that way?

Who knows.
It sends my soul a shiver.
I heard it. "Pow!"
My cousin left dead by the trigger.

I'm truly sorry for what happened. At least you showed that something beautiful can come out of death and pain. Your poem is very powerful and provoking
