Just Venting...I think....I pray that I am..But I don't know...


Just a few years ago
I said goodbye
to your father
my brother
he who Watched
from the Watchtower
helped to shape Destee.com
into what it is today
Yes just a few years ago
I said goodbye
to my little brother
one part of The Xtreme Family
back then it started with three
You, Rich and I
when I said goodbye to him
I took you in
his seed
my flesh and blood
to raise as my own
giving your mother
a place of peace and security
until
things got better
healing began
and time moved on
but just a few years later
violence
snatched you out of my life
and you have gone the road
of your father
my brother
at the tender age of 9
no more shall I see your face
when I come home
go to your plays at school
or even teach you the golden rule in Sunday School
again
I must reach down in my grief
and keep the family together
your mother distraugt
beyond belief
your siblings not understanding
and I
I
I'm being consumed by my dark side
trying to hold it together
doing what I do best
scribing about love
yet
love keeps leaving our family
senseless violence
accidental death
metal intruder
shot from a rod of death
aimed one way
but took its own course the wrong way
struck you
replay of the same scene
years ago
when it was a friend's daughter being shot on her birthday
but she made it
you didn't
but I know who did it
everyone praying that I leave it alone
let the law lay down the law
but the law has no remedy
for what ails Chitown...
but I do
Pray for me
while you sit high with your father
Watching
because
Pray for me
not that I don't give in
but pray that when I do what must be done
I'll have mercy on their soul...:whip:

Deep sight
feeling da grip
da same blizzard
dat hit my home
rocked it strong
took thy child
then they smiled
yet have i forgotten
as Da underworld
of destruction of me
has come and seek
da soul for soul

O' how i can relate
and da tymes we all
shared rawness
do what must be done
as i pray in da name of thy father
that mercy be deem

feelin you deeply
Da $R

I felt the sadness in this, and I think it's only natural to want justice. You will see your way through this brother. Hugs to you and yours, my condolences.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
