The Good Die Young

December Twenty Seventh 
Of Two thousand and Nine
Is the night I lost my brother
A Best friend of mine

The night two paths were chosen
One for him and one for I
A night I'll never forget
The night he lost his life

Sitting in the living room
Getting ready for the night
My good friend Byron called me
And said "Tonight's the Night"

With excitement I said YES!!!
Me and Lee will be there by nine
As I proposed this idea to lee
He simply said” Not tonight"

As I begged and pleaded with him
The question only asked was why
He said I have other plans
I’m going out with friends tonight

So all during the night
Something just didn’t feel right
But I put my feelings aside
And carried out my plans for that night

We began putting our clothes on
Joking and laughing about good times
I never even realized
That this would be the last time

Posing and primping in the mirror
He jokingly said “Do I look rich”
I said “Man you look good”
“But you might be one preppy sum bitch”

As he laughed and said a smartass remark
A horn blew, and then he ran out to the car
His friends were there, and they were ready to go
I said I love you brother and as always he said I know

As I began to leave the house that night
Something in mind, just didn’t feel right
But along I went, and began to drive
To my good friend Byron’s to have a good time

So as the night went on
I had the time of my life
I got drunk and passed out
In the bed of that friend of mine

Awaken by a stranger
A stranger to me at the time
It was one of my dad’s really good friends
Then he said “come on let’s take a ride”
