When I Seen Blood

When I Seen Blood Kiara Lebel Bro I yelled, BRO Hold on we’re almost there Breathe slow Relax your eyes Stay still Pain Don’t speak Look into my eyes I’m not leaving, they’re almost here Strength Grasp my hands Stay close to my heart I see the glistening in your eyes, don’t cry Confusion Lie back Keep still God won’t take you Hesitation And I remember you whisper “Bro I wouldn’t wanna do nothin like this with nobody else” I seen a tear shed from you, and that’s when my chest tightened Don’t say goodbyes, you’re gonna be okay Lost You’re breathing slower You’re eyes are closing And you’re not moving at all now Horror My heart is pounding, you taught me so much Please don’t go And the last thing you whispered was “You my lil bro, get out this life cause it ain’t for all of us.” Dead. Now you’re gone I’m here with our memories, memories that are forever When I seen blood, is when I became a soldier Rest In Paradise, bro
