it’s a wonder I’m not insane

my people told people

I was lazy & crazy

when I told them of the pains

they’d put me through

we like the kid they’d say

dunno why he acts lies this way

he’s fed & watered given the lot

though there was never ever

any mention of love or warmth

& if you treat a kid like this

tell him he’s mad for giving truth

don’t expect a model citizen

some bright beacon of youth

understand its gonna take a while

someone special help the boy

grow up become the man

he was always going to be

before you pinned the words crazy


like some perverted brand
