Dear Tupac


I wish you'd hold on a little longer
You know you don't have to go
So soon and so fast like a wind
There is so much a brother got to say

Too many wrong I can't right
Too many lies with buried truth
Too many roses without petal
Though non grew from the concrete

War of words everywhere
Emotions got stormy
Words got misinterpreted
You were misunderstood

They can't eclipse your legacy
With all the mix tapes and editorials
I hope you understand broken lines
'Cause mine is an unfinished stanza

In heaven's gate to see you among angels
Without guilt a peaceful reflection
God Bless your soul Pac
Wish you peace 'cause there has never been peace

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
