Yesterday I woke
up dead.
I was savagely
slain by pain's
sword.
I can't afford to
let other mortals
behold me cause a
mere glance will
perish the human
spirit.
Imprisoned by
anguish's
henchemen,
escape is futile.
Locked in a lair
of loneliness with
not enough air to
breathe through an
abyss-black heart.
Numb from not knowing
nightmares from reality.
I became a casualty of
life.
Afraid to live.
Afraid to give GOD praise.
Afraid I won't hear him.
Scared to kneel near him.
Nervous cause I fear him.
I reach out to the outer
limits of worldly realms,
summoning strength,
but my plea is pissed on.
Afraid to exist on.
Who had the right to pass
judgement toward my brother
and sentence him to see eternity
before me?
It's not fair.
I was supposed to be there somewhere
first cause I was the last male birth
of an all male dynasty.
It was written that I,
being the last born,
be the first torn from his mother's
arms and sacrifice his life to the light
of all there is so that all may live.
My brother wasn't ready,
it wasn't his time.
It was mine.

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:
