An Outlaw is Born

21 years ago today
the anniversery of my birth
unleashing this outlaw
apon the earth
Jesse Jaymz is my name
and i say it with pride
so come on, take my hand
and let me take you for a ride
as for my life it aint been easy
looking back at the things i've done
theres been alot of heartache
but theres been alot of fun
moved around alot in my life
where i layed my head was home
looking for a better life
to the streets i did roam
so i joined a gang and it was great
it was like a family
i just wanted to be apart of something
and have people care about me
see my dad left us at an early age
leaving my mom to raise us on her own
so she was always working
and i was always home alone
so the gang was fun
and we had alot of good times
but what i didnt know was that i was in to deep
and that it was only a matter of time
then came that dreadfull night
when i turned 17
me and my friend were off to a party
all dressed up in our t-shirt and jeans
then a car came around the corner
flying like a bat out of hell
we seen that it was another gang
one that we knew oh to well
they fired off 4 quick shots
as we jump out of the way
"we missed him lets get out of here"
i heard one of them say
well they did miss me
but they didnt miss my friend
hit him right in the chest
i knew this was his end
i held him in my arms
and he looked into my eyes
he said you got to get out of this man
or you might be the next to die
he layed his head apon my chest
and i knew he was dead
but i did like he had told me
i listened to what he siad
so i got out of the gang
we made our sepreate ways
i got out of it alive
and i am thankfull to this day
i moved on with my life
and then i fell in love
she pulled me from the darkness
she was my angel from above
so i moved in with her
and i gave her my heart
thinking to myself
that we'd never be apart
it was a wild love
nothing in my ever felt so true
when she used to kiss my ear
and whisper i love you
things were going right again
i was living all my dreamz
it was like it was to good to be true
lord i wish i could have forseen
cuz as soon as things got good again
it all came tumbling down
she said she loved another
someone else she had found
that shattered my heart again
and once again i was blue
for i lost the only thing i had faith in
and that was our love so true
down for the count
with no where to go
thinking that life had handed me
my final blow
i am trying to pull myself up
and let this broken angel fly
looking for someone
that will never make me cry
can you take my hand?
and lift me from the ground
for deep inside this lonely soul
a heart of gold does pound
will you take this chance?
and love someone like me
for not a truer love
will you ever see
its all up to you
so here is my heart
just be carful with it
dont let it fall apart
i pray that you will say yes
i pray that you will see
i pray that will love
a broken man like me...

Jesse Jaymz



Once upon a time there was a light in my life, now theres only love in the dark, There's nothing I can do, a total eclipse of the heart.

Jesse,
you know that I want you to have the best, and you have given your best in this poem. Happy birthday and many happy re-birthdays too.

Happy Birthday Jesse.  You have had a rough life but you are free of it now.  You can start anew (that rebirth) and make the myths and legends hon.  Use this birthday as your rebirth your new beginnings, and I will always be here for you, if you stumble... *hugs*
Love ya
Merry Christmas

Well, the outlaw had a birthday, and I didn't know! So sorry I missed it, Jesse.
Your poem is very touching, and truthful. I hope you find the happy life you have been seeking. I think you will, with that heart of gold.
Luv ya

Happy b-day!
May the next 21 be bright!


I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

Happy birthday JJ, I enjoyed reading
your poem and learning about your life.
You have had one hell of an adventure,
and to think it's just beginning. I am
sorry for your sorrow, but I feel certain
tomorrow will be better ~~
