Little boy was going to grow up to be a man
Many problems he did not understand
Open minded and afraid
Wished all bad things would go away
Day and night wondered about his life
Would he ever have a wife?
Day and night tried to help
But also had problems himself
Day and night wanted to fight back
Wanted a good GPA but was not on track
Day and night watched his mother cry
Always asked himself the same question, Why?
Wanted all the pain to end
But he couldn’t find anyone to blame.
Day and night worked hard for his school
People saw him as a fool
Day and night wanted to have money to give back to his mom
Because she was tired and needed some love
Learned at a young age how cruel people are
Knew his mom deserved her own star.
Day and night day dreamed of a perfect world
Without sickness or suffering
Day and night studied and studied
Morals taught by his mother, he embodied
Day and night wonder about his future
Seemed like he had a good sense of humor
Protected his family with all his might
Telling them everything was going to alright
Day and night spent hours at school and for homework
In order for his mother to take a rest and watch him move forward.
