It was 11:30 pm last night when my phone rang out, disturbing the peace of my quiet house. I rose from the bed knowing something was wrong because everyone knows when and when not to call my phone. A number came up that was somewhat familiar to me. An old friend from my past, long time no see. The voice on the other end asked how I was, to which I replied "I'm aiight. You?" to which he responded "I'm tryna maintain too."
Him: Well I don't know if you care or not but So & So passed away tonight.
DMT: Oh my God... Damn yo. Are you ok?
Him: I'm trying. I can't believe he's dead.
See me and S&S had a falling out a couple years ago. I have not spoken to or seen him during this time. From his opening statement, I gathered that S&S passed w/out knowing that I had long forgiven him for what he did to me and I held no ill will. See in my mind what was done was done. Lifes experiences are supposed to make you wiser and with that experience I learned a valuable lesson.
This morning as I did last night, I sent up a lil prayer to my fallen old friend. No one knows why God chose now to bring you home, but it is in his will that it be done. My eyes will be shut when your funeral comes, for I want to remember you as the strong MAN you were!
See you when I get there yo! You know who you are S&S!
