    What's at the bottom of this bottle?- j$crilla

    just a piece, keystyle about an old friend.


    you were the only one that could keep me happy for more than an hour
    you were the only one that could make me smile, when it wasn't necessary

    i think back on the times we had, and the times that were....
    all i want to remeber is the good, but the bad continues to plaque my mind
    you had so much potential when it came to life and its many prospects
    you had so much hope until you let the marijuana control your every move
    i remember the times that we'd sit at your mom's house and just chill
    all i can do now is constantly look for that same thrill
    we could of gone far together in this thing called life
    but you had to throw out all the options and pick up the knife
    why? didn't you ask me for some help
    were you scared? Maybe i would say no,
    these questions i guess will never be answered by you,
    but i think i can answer them quite easily
    you always chose the easy way out on things
    when it came to football practice in junior high, you were the best
    when it came to basketball i would shut you down!!
    you had academics tackled down as well, you could of graduated with a 4.0
    but you chose the easy way out
    drugs consumed every brain cell
    the next step most definetely was the jail cell
    you got out of there and it was right back to good ol u
    for like a month, and then something would happen
    i dont know dawg, you were my boy for the longest
    4 years of loyalty, friendship and all that was thrown away when you made the decision
    u were precise with that incision

    I wish i could of talked to you one last time
    before you made up your mind
    now all i do is pray for you and hope to God that you stay safe
    damn dawg i even gave up my old ways, im going to church and having faith

    Rip
    hope to see ya
    when its my time

    yea same with me, my world would be turned up side down if I lost my best friend. Shit we been like brothers for 11 years. This was very sad... it's a shame when people have to resort to killing themselves. It's sad that you never even got a chance to even try and talk them out of it. All around crushing


    Stay Up, much Love, Peace

    Good piece. The sentiment I can't deny. I've got a best friend too. I'm not really sure what happened with your friend, but it does sound tragic. But there were some things here that urked me. First of all, I know plenty of people who mess up in school and with my own eyes I've seen them end up in a better place than the ones who did everything they were supposed to do. Sometimes, a bad descision is just a stepping stone to growth. Secondly,(and I'm somewhat ambivalent) I don't think marijuana is such a bad thing. I also know many successful and happy potheads. Just look at San Fran. But I know that a person who is depressed should not smoke pot. It doesn't help. anyways, I don't know why I felt like I had to add this, but your poem really made me think. And I appreciate that alot. keep churning them out. I hope I didn't say something here that aggravates the bad feelings, these are just my thoughts and they are welcomely discarded.

    hey dawg, thanks for the feedback and all, i appreciate you sharing that and no it wasnt pointless for you to write this. And no i dont take offense to this, but you got to look at marijuana this way okay say your best friend smokes marijuana and thats all he really does, really has no goals in life, just smokes it away, thats what i was implying in this piece. Believe me im not a activist against marijuana, but it is called a drug for a reason, it drags you the fuck down if you abuse it , simple as that na mean. And yes there are alot of successful potheads, so anyway ill let this one be and thanks again for the feedback im glad that my writing can inspire someone to open there mind and see options. peace out

    I like how this was like an emotional conversation of grieving. It made me just feel it and start to think of everyone I lost. Def a great drop.
