Only Five

17 04 2007

He was only five when his mother died.

Inches away from death she told him she had tried

To bring what she promised him as a child just born but

the world just had other plans…with her life when she had a chance

And the mystery will reveal itself on the other side.

He was only five when his mother lied

Lied about the world and that she’d tried

Leaving him alone was never in their plans

Mama and him vowed that they’d take a chance

They’d take a dance

they’d take a stance

they’d hold hands

and never lose a chance. But…

He was only five when his innocence died

while he tried to bring his mama back alive

He prayed and prayed to bring mama back alive

Promised the world to God to bring mama back alive

‘Mama’s my world, my shelter, my pride,’ but…

Mama’s just a memory now who promised she’d try

Promised him comfort whenever he would cry

not from pain, but what pain she could not hide

from his path…

of becoming a young man … a young man … a young man…

……..a young man …………………….. a young man.

He’s a young man now. Broken. Surrounded by broken lives. Broken everything.

What fucking good is he?
