A Lament for Lamont

The middle of October I found out my uncle passed away from a heart attack…

So, Im financially FUCKED!!! I just left Michigan a few weeks prior for my cousins funeral…he was shot in the head. I called my mother, who put me on the phone with her mother, who then told me the unexpected news. I was…more than hurt…I JUST seen him at the other funeral!

Now Im weighing my travel  options…
Can I afford to shoot this move???

I was on the Highway with the iPod on shuffle getting my car karaoke on when a song came on…

I cried.

I know I won’t be able to see the flesh of this mans soul for the last time…

I Cried

I have told the story MANY times over the past 5.5 years…but yesterday…

I told my brother exactly how it happened…step by step…and as I did that…I was RIGHT BACK behind that wheel.

I saw the streetlights…the road…the curve…I felt the speed…the momentum…

…and the impact…

I felt the friction of me sliding across the median about 300 yards…

…and I sat there…

IN SHOCK!!!

I saw my brother in front of my face the whole time I told him. I grabbed on to the wall, gripping it in a VICE like clutch!!!

Heart racing…

…breathing heavy…

…DEEP into my past thoughts, emotions & feelings…

“………I am truly blessed…….”
