Saturday Beats: Would Anyone Know?

More writings from our incarcerated Bay Area youth.

Would Anyone Know?
I wonder if I were to die in here, would anyone know,
would my sister know, would my brother know?
I always wondered.
If I were to die would I have a funeral?
Would I have a tux with a casket
or will I have a sheet in a cold refrigerator.
I wonder if they would notify my father.
I wonder would I be buried or will I just be dead.
Most likely nobody will know…
I’ll just be another dead person in the world.
No one would miss a beat ….
no one would care I’ll just go and nobody will know.
