What My Dyeing Farther Said To Me - Poem by Matthew Soriano

I'm sorry for leaving you
Your sister and you have to stay strong for your mother
I'm not a freight to die
I have accepted my fate
I'm not going to lie to you and tell you everything is fine
This disease is embedded in my DNA
There's nothing the doctors can do to make this go away
This disease was like a time bomb
It was just waiting for the right time to explode
Wipe those tears from your eyes
Crying for me will not make things better
Use the tools that I have taught you to make it in life
Go through college and get a job and get a wife
Use my death as a fuel to push you through school
You can repay me by being the best you can be
And remember 'no one dies a virgin the world screws you over everyday'

    Listen to what your father says, go through college and I'm thinking thats
    next year or two, because my sis was born in 90' and shes going to college
    next semester. But honestly, your father's right, you got to keep goin.
