he rose up to challenge the world.
Lost in the insanity of drugs, crime, and poverty,
this phoenix rose to righteously fight his war.
He spit at our illusions and he raged against the lies.
He knew he faced death but still he gladly gave his life.
What a noble crusade.
What a beautiful hatred.
What a noble life lost taken away.
maybe then I'd find my hope and faith renewed.
I wish I could face this world
with the same bravery and beautiful rage and noble hatred.
in everything that I do.
I wish I was as brave and true
until the day I die.
