When I Heard the Bad News

By D.T.

When I heard my man got kill

Something like brother

I ain’t believe when I hear

Man I couldn’t think straight.

The hurt I felt

I cry tears in a bucket

when I heard that s***


  1. This is a beautiful poem and tribute to your friend and how much you loved him. The line about crying tears in a bucket is especially vivid. I am so sorry that you lost someone that meant so much to you. You are too young to experience this kind of pain. I pray that you are able to use his memory to do powerful and positive things with your life. Thank you for sharing your writing!
