    I look like a child
    I don't know my age
    I may look
    but I kill you faster than any man
    I may be illiterate
    but I can educate you on how to put a rifle togather
    I may be a child physically
    but I'm a man physically
    I watched kill people in my village
    I watched mothas sellin their daughtes for a peice of bread
    I saw when they took me out of my village to fight a Civil War
    I walked in the jungle
    wit a riffle in my hand
    no shoes to protect my feet
    I killed my best friend
    Shed a tear and killed another
    I have no fear because I'm not a child
    been through more stuff than any man
    So when you see me in me in my country
    Look at me as the man I am
    I done so much not to be called
