Lacking strength the ability to act
A child falls short of life’s simple fact
Those deemed weak can only sit and stare
As everything is taken without a single care

Outgrown are the times when this held true
No longer put down by the words of just few
Developed in age beyond realms of fear
Bloody and beaten but the smile now clear

A man can’t fear with nothing to lose
When everything is gone it’s all his to choose
No idol threats of what maybe taken
The worrying promise of a life so forsaken
