riding shotgun with the devil

stories of your life
have been glorified
in media headlines
family members cries
who are ignorant
to the truth
you can put the blame
on a weakened heart
but drugs and alcohol
probably did more harm
blowing off responsibility
hurting those close
with vicious words
even more ugly actions
beating a man close to death
prove an accurate worth
screaming so strong
but living so weak
they say you loved
they say you cared
your selfish acts
tell a different tale

even in death
you have them fooled
life of a man
worth no more
then a sad tune
