Obituary 2012

R.I.P. Frederick E. Buhl

TALENT not wasted…TALENT that is an INSPIRATION – – – and will CONTINUE to be an inspiration.


My pen blends the thoughts in my head.
Sadly, these aren’t the only sentences facing black men.
They blame bad luck for lack of bucks with their hands outstretched.
They’re reaching for change but I only have common sense to lend,
because, knowledge is priceless and being broke is the equivalence of ignorance.
It’s far from bliss, it’s far from this.
A nation’s generation so caught up in affiliation,
lost with no destinations, empty seats at graduations…
Searching for patience feels like I’m searching for the man,
in the red and white sweater and hat with the blue pants and glasses again…
Damn, there I go getting distracted again.
Bad habits and friends seem to mix like affection and gin,
while bullets seem to be the only shots these niggas can bartend.
And we’re back in church and it’s not even the weekend.
Everything happens for a reason,
I’m just praying God let’s me see another four seasons.
Yeah… and I’m praying for you,
as I ridicule this fabricated truth among the youth
that success is only found on a court or in a booth.
As I sit and view this news of this suicidal genocide
that’s got us scared of our own kind.
They got one life lost to white lines and jail time.
What good are the eyes if your mind is blind?
What good is the message if you ignore the signs?
You see… I’m just bringing all the facts in.
My words are like a chemical compound,
I’m just trying to get a reaction.

    • – – – i HONESTLY fear for every Black man’s life in America – – –

      between White police / corrections / security, Black thugs / gangsters / goons, the MEDIA (catalyst for the decline of society) and ignorant / selfish / infected WOMEN, becoming a grandfather (or reaching old age) as a Black man seems like something that only happens in the movies.

    • yeah, man…the LIE that is circulating and being perpetuated in and around the younger generations of Black youth is nothing less than a silent war (a MULTIFACETED war)…and the coldest thing about the lie IS that when it’s all said and done, even if you ACQUIRED all of the MATERIAL things you wanted in life, you won’t be remembered for BENEFITING humankind – – – you’ll only be BRIEFLY remembered for the POSSESSIONS that you owned – – – which end up being worthless in the grand scheme of things.

  1. …so your whole life only really amounted to making someone else rich…and doing nothing SUBSTANTIAL or SUSTAINABLE for your people…

  2. “…even if you ACQUIRED all of the MATERIAL things you wanted in life…”

    this is the coldest part.
    seems like when people start making six and seven figures,
    their [needs] keep increasing at the same rate.

    they always want more,
    and keep increasing their appetites for luxury.

    e-40 already said it best on rappers ball:

    [don’t buy an eighty-five thousand dollar car,
    before you buy a house]

    it’s common sense for most people,
    but others blind themselves just like freddy was sayin…

    • “others blind themselves just like freddy was sayin…”

      but you gotta think about it…WHERE are people getting these VALUES from???

      WHO is propagating those values and WHY?

      WHERE is the blindness STEMMING FROM and why is the blindness on the INCREASE???
