Emo Vs. Gangster

By Ethan Vanderbuilt

Death did not take me today
I guess it got lost on the way

I heard some gun shots,
over a couple of blocks
I rushed over in my socks

I found a new friend on the way
She was gangster I would say

She flashed her 45 and took me aside
Darkness closed in from all sides
Could this be the end of life’s horrifying ride?

Soon a camera was recording I shared without hiding or distorting

I found out we were the same
Both unafraid of deaths game
So I gave her my name

I was shocked it was the same.
