    They is a lil boy out there who is cold and alone,
    there is a lil boy out there who has been abandoned,
    there is a boy out there who has nobody to console him,
    he is.. torn ..
    he is angry..
    he is lost..
    there is a lil boy out there who has a family,
    but is stuck in a system that will not set him free.
    That little boy is my brother,
    three and a half years ago..
    his world froze..
    the judge said two years in jurvenile detention.
    but forgot to mention..
    that when he came home..
    that it would not be over..
    that hed still have to look over his shoulder,
    Simply.. because mentally hes still the child
    at the age of twelve,
    his brain froze..
    and when it began to melt..
    and thaw..
    the system said naw..
    cant let that lil ***** grow up,
    the state is your father,
    and parole is your momma,
    6months home..
    good grades,
    smile returned after 2 years gone,
    still not understanding what the heck went wrong,
    Out there there is a lil boy,
    who is serving a sentence of a killer,
    who made honor roll,
    and cinnamon buns,
    who dosent understand,
    the whys of the world.

    There is a little boy,
    who is alone.
    Thant little boy is my brother,
    that i cant hug,
    or tell him its going to be okay.
    Because the government,
    dosent see it that way.


    R.I.P - to a lil boy who lost his soul, to the system.
