Lannis Holmes was a young man that I worked with. His life just recently ended at 24.



Tried hard to be the smooth tough ghetto boy

Always defiant

Wouldn't dress right

Got your job done

And loved by all

You spoke of your son

Showed me his picture

He looked like you

Tattoos devoted to fallen loved ones

Your music rebellious

You were surprised I knew it, too

You were going to be a star one day

And I thought your wish would come true

Together we worked on your CD cover

A zillion photos

Before you left that day you walked up behind me

And you stroked my long blond hair

Didn't say a word

Neither did I

We didn't know that you were due to die

Miss you, Lannis

Reviewed by Felix Perry 4/9/2006
Sad, poignant write and the depth of your passion and loss is all too clear in the words you speak. This says so much about the young man that we who are artists of the word cannot help but feel your sadness as it emotes from your writing in tribute of a lost friend. My sympathy to you Blue in your loss.

Felix
