Ode To My Killer
Before you shoot, look into my eyes,
Can you see the same fear you feel inside?
You may see me as someone who has it all,
But I have the same fears and hesitations after all.
I know your pain and what is tearing at you,
For I have the same self- conscious feelings too.
So before you shoot look deep and you may realize
You see a lot of yourself in my eyes.
Before you shoot, think and feel what would it be like,
To be on the other end of my strife.
Will taking from me ease your pain?
Or can we deal with this maybe some other way.
Before you shoot come into my heart,
Think of all your tearing apart,
My life is in your hands itís true,
Do you really want this consequence tearing away at you?
Before you shoot or think that thought,
Tell me of your pain and what youíve sought.
Maybe youíll find someone youíll treasure
You never gave me a chance to show what I have to offer.
I can only ask these things and itís all up to you,
I have no power, which is what you wanted to do.
So now that youíve got what you wanted to do,
Please think of these things before you shoot.
