A person I wasn't close to from highschool?
We knew each other by name and face
We may even had memories with our similar friends.
But what would I write to mourn
Someone I knew nothing special of?
That all that I knew is less than who he really is,
I may not even know who he had been lately!
Why I would write a poem to mourn
Is maybe due to reasons we are all unaware
Or maybe because I never had the chance to learn
Who he really was as others have known.
Note: He wasn't my friend. He wasn't anyone in my life other than being my classmate. Yet this fact that makes me feel I should, in behalf of those who barely knew him, especially those people that surrounded him. R.I.P Mark Lester Cruz.
