I love you whenever....forever. Tupac, so much I needed to
say, so much you wanted to say. Many conversations between
us within the ether, whenever forever. The pain inflicted
that scarred your soul but not your spirit gave force to the
rebellion. Many couldn't see your dreams or understand your
nightmares. How could they, Tupac? I knew your love and
understood your passion. But you knew of your beginning and
saw your end....racing towards it. You taught and fought
through your songs and deeds. RATT-TATT-TATT of words
penetrating the contradiction of our existence. Whenever....forever
Who cares? We cared, Tupac. The Shakurs have been guided by
struggle, prepared or not, whenever....forever. We've
exposed our existence, naked from fear, to those who would
hear the positive. Who would witness the stress, wear and
tear of this lonely path. You couldn't have evaded the
effect or the changes. You inherited it, it was in your
genes. But still, you danced your dance, you lived your
life. You forced loyality on those who would fake and shake
at the true vision. You were Tupac
Like the four seasons, we come to this planet taking form,
becoming elements of nature, Some of us are only one season,
and others like you were part of many seasons. This dynamic
will scare most anyone who realized the burden at such an
early stage of life. You fought well. We love you. We
understand....forever, whenever. Please give my love to our
family. Ask them to help you on the other side. Tell Zayd,
Lumumba, Aby, Brother Leggs, Mtaryi, Attallah, that they are
to continue to help us down here. Shakur's love is strong.
Friday 13th didn't mean a thing. Life is for living and
dying well. Whenever.....forever. Allah knows best. We
choose the quality of our life. You understand the pain of
disappointment in the ones we love. You pushed so many away.
Burnt so many bridges so they wouldn't follow you into
battles against the demons you were facing. Knowing well to
what lengths you would go. This battlefield of reality is
littered with many meaningless casualties
You never yelled out "Somebody, save me!" You only asked for
your soul to be free, whenever....forever. You told us to
keep our head up, knowing the pain was coming. Knowing to
look for the strength in the heavens. Set your soul free,
We keep waiting in vain for their love
Will your levitation be awakening of us all?
The division unsettling to our dreams and goals?
You passing demanding repentance and resistance?
We keep waiting, not in vain. We give you love. Give us love.
To my brother and son, these emotions are hell. I wish you
well in the next journey. My soul aches for comfort. In our
next life we will finish our unfinished journey. Whenever.....forever
For now Tupac, we will hold our heads up. This journey is at
an end, your ashes are in the wind. Friends and enimies will
have to look to the stars. You are truly a star. A star
navigating through the dynamics of this, your path chosen
before you arrived. Lessions we've gained will materialize
after you're gone. Whenever....forever
Your family will keep the spirit high, for we are Shakurs.
We are thankful for what life gives us. Through the pain and
the struggle we are blessed by the victory. Go forward,
The victories---we will teach your mission, we are thankful
for you. We love you, Tupac Shakur. We ain't mad at you,
we'll be better because of you.
So now I give you my tears so I might assimilate your loss
and I can live on in peace.
Knowing I will feed your spirit with my unconditional love,
knowing you will need it on your next journey.
May Allah bless you for your deeds and forgive your errors.
Tupac come to me an give me strength.
Your father, friend, comrade,
