Raging Hunger Part 1
by Brandon Music
Hope had come from the past and never from the future as was in david’s case. Holding the picture of his mother and two brothers he started to sob. Why? Why did they have to die? His family had passed away into death in a deadly drive-by shooting that took the live of 46 people.
He was in a deep depression ever since the day it happened. Nightmares were his ally at the time when he went off into a slumber where he would awake only minutes. the horror would never stop. HIs dreams consisted of only two things: Watching his family die in horror and his mother’s last words “Why have you done nothing to help us”.
Clenching the photograph in his hand he got up from the bed and put his hands on his dresser drawer. He majestically pushed them to the right side destroying the vases and glasses at one time his mother had loved almost as much as he. He then raised his hands from what he thought to be a ceremonious bow and gazed into the mirror. He could see he almond shaped with the geometric nose. His brunette, wavy hair put to one side symbolizing how part of him was dead ever since that day. His was barely able to keep his vision from the tears that crowded it. He raised his right hand ( again still clutching the photo ) pounced on the glass shattering it to pieces.
“It still haunts me,” he said to himself while wiping his blood off on the bed,”I have to move on.”
“Dont forget about us” a voice said in the distance.
“IT is I, your mother,” she said her voicing beginning to become louder. “YOu must revenge us you have felt it coming ever since the day of the shooting”. “We must no die in vain son , please we hunger to have died in peace please, son please!”.
Then in a quick move her voice was out . Nothing but silence filled the room with the man whose heart broken and empty. He wiped away he tears and tried to contemplate what he should do. She he follow his mothers words? He then decided to sleep on it.
