This work has reached the exceptional level
A dedication to my dearly departed little brother.
"A Place For Me" by the13thpoet
A young life lived too hard.
A young life gone too fast.
An innocent soul wandering.
Trying to find its path.

A lost soul with nowhere to go.
Always on the roam.
A lost soul with nowhere to go.
Trying to find a home.

Innocence in a world of guilt.
A shining light trapped in the dark.
A little piece of compassion.
In a world that has no heart.

Now your soul has been set free.
You no longer have to roam.
Your search is finally over.
For now, you've found a home.

Without you here by my side.
It's so hard to go on.
But I know deep down inside.
You're right where you belong.

Even though we want you here.
We know you're where you want to be.
So, until the day my time has come.
Staff save a place for me.

dedicated to: Staff Dorann Jordan august 2002


Author Notes
To my readers, yes that was my brother's name Staff. He died on August 4th 2001 exactly one month before his 21st birthday. My father (sperm donor) was a drug using, woman beating, religious fanatic, go figure. My brother and I (Roddy) got our names from the 23rd psalms.....Thy Rod(dy) and thy Staff they comfort me.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
