He grew up with his mother only,
and was told that his father was
a no-good hustling phony.

the man that had birthed him,
and why he deserted him.
For years he hated him,
but curiosity kept bating him.
He resented his father,
and wanted to know why

Years later he’s made a
good life for himself.
He’s made momma proud,
but years of anger continues
to scream out loud.
He hired a private investigator
to track down the missing piece,
so that his mind could finally be at peace.
Meanwhile everything else in
his life had been going great
but his personal life was in shambles,
He always knew that love was a gamble.
His wife had been acting
odd and very sneaky,
His thoughts were starting to get creepy,
yet he maintained his trust,
cause what they have is real love
and never lust.
Then things got weirder,

His filled with rage.
How could she break all
of the promises that they’ve made.
With the P.I.’s info he
followed them to Detroit Michigan,
where it all comes to a complete end.
The wife and guy met in a fancy hotel,
while the husband was straight
on their tail.
He stood outside their door listening in,
He began hearing his wife moaning and groaning.
As the tears fall from his eye,
A part of him literally died.
As he was about to make his move
his phone vibrates,
The conversation that he had with his P.I.
had made him more madder and
even more irate.
He kicked down their door
and pulled out his 24-caliber gun,
the love making quickly stops and
the shooting had begun.
He shot both of them twice
in the head.
Just like that they were both dead.
He stares them both down as he’s
hurt, bitter, and mad,
He realizes that he just killed
his wife and his dad.
