Tupac Shakur

In the Event of My Demise

In the event of my Demise
when my heart can beat no more
I Hope I Die For A Principle
or A Belief that I had Lived 4
I will die Before My Time
Because I feel the shadow's Depth
so much I wanted 2 accomplish
before I reached my Death
I have come 2 grips with the possibility
and wiped the last tear from My eyes
I Loved All who were Positive
In the event of my Demise

    When i watch this guy's interviews and listen to his story and gangster musical lyrics, i'll wonder what kind of man is this. He seemed like that type of guy that won't sit one place and pen something down. But he didn't only do it, his words are deeply inspirational. No one inspires me like him. Your words lives on man..

    hmmm! what can i say, true talent that in touch with his soul is more like a prophet that can foresee thing to come from far distance. (Report) Reply

    I think that this poem is very touching, and it also gives insight as to how Tupac was willing to die for his beliefs. Makes you ask yourself some questions about how you wish to be remembered or what meaning do you give to your life. (Report) Reply

    i luv this poem. it shows a different said of him, not the hard and thug part but the part that was real, coo and smart. by the way i dont believe that neither tupac nor Biggie killed the other. i think it had alot to do with the ppl who prefered tupac over biggie and the ppl who prefered biggie over tupac in my case they are both great artist sad tht their lives was cut short by stupidness. as a wise woman once said the truth is always being covered up with rumors and lies for the person who forms their own opinion and discovers the truth only then well the lies stop, but the rumors will never die (Report) Reply

    Was pac expecting his death? This is a strong farewell note from a man who did his bit for Human rights especially for Black Liberation. Great poem! RIP 2 Pac (Report) Reply
