anthem for the abandoned

This is the anthem for the abandoned youth,
This is for me, this is for you,
I hope you are listening.

“Honey, I’m home…
where the fuck is dinner?”
“My daddy ain’t religious,
he is a god-damn sinner…”
Should I believe?
Can he free?
Ah shit… here it goes again,
My notebook is my best friend.

“Oh, Daddy, I like this one.”
“Oh, this shit look likes fun.”
So, I got everything I ever wanted inside,
But, if you saw me last night, the tears I cry
I don’t really have a Mommy and Daddy,
Just two people with an endless supply
of some cash, some money, some quick fix,
Now I have Jack and some Hydros…a nice mix.

“Local Man killed in Iraq…”
Does that mean Daddy’s not coming back?
My Mother tried to be strong, but really could not,
This moment, this death, this hit the most painful spot,
It hit home inside of my heart,
Please, God, don’t tear us apart,
My little brother just turned five…

Life is not a run,
May not be all fun,
No one said it was easy to live,
Learn to breathe, learn to forgive,
Learn to live, learn to love,
Learn to trust in God above,
Learn to believe in the words I say.
