(This Entry was typed out and ready to be Published on the 3rd of this month, it was delayed for Undisclosed reasons, in other words: Mind ya Business, lolol. Enjoy)
Damn ya, Its May 3rd already? I missed the Anniversary of the day I almost met my maker. Lol
First and foremost, Thank You Dear Heavenly Father for giving me another day of life today, Thank you for blessing me with breathe everyday for these passed 22 years. You and I both know I count my blessings each day.
So last year on May 2nd, I was rollin around with Buddy, drivin around. It was a regular evenin, nuttin major. So we headed to the block like we usually do. Stopped at Paul's to get some Chinese food and Buddy was goin to see a girl on the other side of Davidson. For those of you who don't know we are all from the Burnside area, and our street is Davidson. Davidson is a long street and our side is divided by a big school. That's why we call it the other side of Davidson. So that side is still the same street, but it might as well be another world. Remember in Lion King when Mufasa was showing Simba the Pride Lands and explained to him that the shadowy area is the area he should never ever go to, well that's the other side of Davidson for us.
So, now that you've got the picture allow me to continue.
We picked up our food and we drove around the school. When we got there we both looked at it as if it were a different planet lol. We saw these lil rowdy niggas outside of the building in front of us, but either way, we paid it no mind. Buddy parked the car, I told him "Make it quick nigga, you know we don't bang with this side." He said "No doubt, its a Hi and Bye Thing" and walked into the building where his lady friend was. Which was on the passenger side of the car, one buildin behind the car. I opened up my food and began to put all the duck sauce and soy sauce on it, and the lil rowdy niggas had disappeared, but only for a few seconds.
Outta nowhere I hear Bullets from behind the car, I was startled and I jumped. I saw a kid, no older than 16 or 17 pointing and shooting a gun at the lil rowdy niggas that had been standing there, then ran back. One of the rowdy niggas returned shots and ran passed the car to catch him, but as he passed by the truck he looked at me, we locked eyes and everything was moving slow. I saw him, and he saw me, and I swore my body got cold. I ducked down and sat on the floor of the car in front of the seat, my head was under the dashboard and I swore I was a dead man really soon. I was down there with nothing to clutch to but my plate of Chinese food and I began to make my peace with God. Just as I said/thought "Amen" the door opened. In my mind it was the kid I had locked eyes with, he pointed the gun at my face and pulled the trigger.........
Phew, but then I opened my eyes and it was this tall nigga Buddy. Oh man! I can remember putting together the only words I could "Yo Buddy, Let's Go Nigga, DRIVE!" I saw the fear in his wide opened eyes, without saying a word he got in closed the door, put the car in drive and sped off, he did that all in One seemless move. Lol. We got to the corner and saw two cops harrising someone that surely wasn't doing anything, and Buddy said "Look at these niggas, they didn't hear that? They should be up the block" finally we make a right at the dead end and back around the school, and never again returned to the other side of Davidson.
That is not until earlier today when Perse said he had to go there to meet someone. In fact, that's what reminded me of the incident. Funny how God works huh? Its almost as if we were supposed to return to the scene of the crime a year later, to remind us of it, and give thanks that we are still alive and well.
Shortly after the incident me and Buddy were dying laughin. But we vowed not to tell the fellas about it cause they'd be pissed that we almost met our demise over somethin as dumb as going to see a girl in an area that we know aint safe.
Lol, crazy right? But yea man, I just wanna Thank God again, I realized it wasn't our time and not until it is will we go. It was just a wrong place wrong time kinda thing. So with all that said, be safe out there.
Stay Up and Stay Tuned.
