The Voice from the Streets

A young man

Lifeline the streets

A sad song playing

This one’s epitome

Born to the Underground

Lifelong dreams

A voice among the shadows

Ready for the world to see

Hidden with the ashes

Gunshots ensued

His dream the vision

Many clutch to in pursuit

His words a promise

Never broken to the young

A message for the lost

Who live under the gun

The one who told it

The one who knew

Raw talent his weapon

With the world he grew.

In Loving Memory of Tupac Amaur Shakur.
