By: Carlos

If you were there, my dearest friend
To have taken me out of this situation
If I had not ignored your call
I wouldn’t have had been at the wrong place
At the wrong time where someone got killed

Now, every night, I law on my bunk thinking
I should have just answered your call
If only I had stopped hanging with those folks
If only I had listened to my elders
If only I had paid attention in school
If only…
If only…
