The crime in 2009
Some believe it's fine
Born innocent as all
Because of Juan A. Martinez Matos, he was led to his downfall
Dressed as a women Jorge did
19 and happy, untill then
Juan saw Jeorge, believing he's a women
Invited him in his car
His death was not near far
Now in Cayey, Puerto Ricco he now lays
Because someone took his life away
As well as his body
Burned, dismembered, decapitated,dead
Teared limb from limb, as well as his head
Many tears shed
When they lay in bed
The mother and father of yours Truly
Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado
But it was not just only Juan who disagreed
But some law enforcement officers indeed
Law enforcement officers who is to be at your side
These did not care that he died
Saying "He got what he had coming to him because his sexual orientation"
But everyone's different, from any nation
Those comments that were said angered most
Even those he did not know
Miriam Mercado, the mother who loves
Even when her son told her he was gay
She said,"Now I love you more" I bet she does every day
I agree with another word she said
"Hatred is not born with human beings,
It is a seed that's planted by adults and is fostered
Creating a climate of intolerance and violence
We must change our ways and understand that anyone..could have been my son."
But in a way, they won
Thousands of mourners gathered to remember two:
Puerto Rican Jorge,19 and African American Jason,15 too
Anchorage, Alaska, Los Angelus too
West Hollywood,California if only I was there too
San Francisco, Chicago, Terra Haute,
Indiana, San antonio, Dallas,North Carolina,
Washington, DC, if only I could see
Instead of hear but those also in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York did
Do you regret what you did?
Knowing you really sinned?
Not like God but still pinned
Not in his heart but it was stopped
Because of you like a balloon he popped
Not literally but almost
Once alive like all
But you just wanted him to fall
Because your mistake and stupidity
I would never give you any pity
You deserve what you get
Like all the rest
Two deaths may not seem right
But you're the one who put up the fight
If you don't like those who are gay
Then just stay away
You were the one looking for sex
Which you shouldn't have been doing since it's illegal
Driving in your car you found Jeorge
Who you thought was a girl instead of a boy
Do you think it's right?
Do you think it's fair?
That you gave him such pain so hard to bare?
No Soul no heartbeat
As you left him on a street
Burned and shattered
His blood spattered
And yet you just stay in jail
But next may be hell
If not there then I'll be shocked
But I'm still glad you're locked
If that was your family member
Brother, Sister, Son are daughter
Would you want anyone to go farther?
To kill the one you love because they hate?
And will probably always discriminate?
I think not so why did you kill?
You say Gay-panic I say BS!!
From the ones who loved him you deserve to get hit
So knowing there were thousands of people against you
How do you feel
Do you with you could redo
What you have done
This isn't fun
To know in my life things like this has been done
To people in our life
Because who they like
If someone hurt you because who you like
How would you feel?
Think before you act
You wouldn't want to get stabbed in the back
There are people who have
I wish peace for those who died
LGBT and all
For you will no longer fall
You now rest in peace
And go to sleep
For in some, your memories we keep
This makes me cry
So many people die
Because they do not tolerate
Just choose to hate
Who two people create
All together because of death
If only they all had another breath
Along with their life
That were taken away
Maybe I can meet you all some day
Some of the people already payed
And some still take time to pay
Juan will pay
As he is now in jail
Needing $4 million bail
Jeorge's life started August 13, 1990
And ended November 13, 2009
You may not have cared in the beginning
But if it was you kid, would it be fine?
