In Truth, He Dies

In Truth, He Dies


Drug buy,
for one it went good.
Drug buy,
for one it went bad.

You see Kevin,
wore high heeled sneakers.
You see Kevin,
was his junkies' keeper.
But one day;
the junkie didn't have it,
so Kevin didn't give it,
but the junkie had to have it,
but Kevin didn't get it.

So when his beeper beeped beeped,
the Junkie popped popped.
And when his beeper beeped beeped.
his heart beat beat,



“Kevin’s Funeral”
In Truth, He Lies

Preacher screams,
"He's goin’ to heaven",,
Kendra cries,
"Wake up Kevin",,
Momma sighs,
"Baby, don't cry",,
Grandma weeps,
"Kevin's asleep",, 
Grandpa states,
"Resting his eyes",,
But when Momma screams,
"wake up Kevin",,
Grandpa weeps, 
and then we all cry,

But to me,
It don't matter none.
Whether Kevin's in Hell,
for what he's done.

But the truth is,
Kevin lies.
In that casket, 
before my eyes,

And the coffin keeps,
such still remains. 
But will the coffin keep, 
what still remains?

Kendra’s Cries
(Kevin’s Baby Sister)

Is Kevin destined,
To rest in sleep?
Or Kevin alive,
When Kendra weeps?

Drive down Main st.
At the stop light,
Stop! Then go right.
Onto Grief St.
"Onto where?"
Onto Grief St.

Drive down Grief St.
At the stop sign.
Stop! Then stare right.
Into Kendra,
"Into where?"
Into Kendra.

Her Kneeees,
Grounded on the concrete.
Her eyeees,
Focused on the concrete.
Her tearrrs,
Falling on that chalk line.
Her hearrrt,
Broken by his outline, 

Put the pedal to the medal,
Try to say "See ya",
Go from zero to sixty;
But I'll still see ya.
Cuz I'm always there,
When Kendra cries.
Some walls got ears,
But mine's got eyes…

Kendra’s Eyes On the Wall {Limerick}

Eye once had a brother named Kevin,
Who got shot and went up to heaven,
He left home one day
And got blown away.
So Eye don't see him no more. 


In Truth, He Dies

Kevin's World - Hopeless

Plastic vials and zip lock bags, dollar bills and dirty needles, broken glass and broken men, beepers that go beep, beep, 
guns that go pop, pop, pop, 

Kevin's World – Hopeful - Remixed

Skateboards and lincoln logs, tinkertoys and basketballs,
popcorn and candy canes, jumping frogs and baseball games,
pop guns and candy wrappers, chocolate and peanut but-

Kevin’s world – Kevin’s Father saw…

but- the truth is
Kevin lies,
Dying before,
My down turned eyes

But the truth is,
I'd give anything,
to be with Kevin,
to be with Kendra,
on the playground,
pushin’ the swings,

But truth is,
I had two good eyes,
Too good eyes
From the third floor,
Of my too high rise,

But the truth is,
I saw where Kevin, 
My son, my blood,
My baby, my bloody,
baby boy

This reads rather like a ballad. It is written with truth and zeal. Bravo!
