PoV: Avon Barksdale, Stringer Bell And The Circle Of Life

By J. Tinsley / 04.03.12

“You only do two days. The day you go in and the day you get out.”

First, there’s birth. Then, family attempts to teach you the ways of the world. Next, that very same world, at some point, affords a valuable lesson, “You’re either going to live until you die. Or die before you get a chance to live.” From there, destiny takes its course. And for Avon and Stringer, their world provided them everything from the women, to the money to the power. Nevertheless, just like the world so viciously does, it changed. Fast money is addictive, but the penitentiary’s a revolving door. Fear is stronger than love. And loyalty should always precede royalty as long as the other party’s intentions are pure.

That’s life.
