Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Adopted boy never accepted by his new parent.
Beggar child

Cold and rain has brought me here
Back it seems a hundred years
Hoping that just once you’d share a smile
You left me there the beggar child
Just one of many dark clouds in your skies
I knew
I was not the son in your eyes

I did not come to see your death
Expecting one more curse with your last breath
If you could never bother
to even try to be a father
Why would I perpetuate the lie?
I knew
I was not the son in your eyes

Innocent but eager to be seen
Your negligence was cold, dark and mean
I grew to hate you and love you all the same
Far too young to understand the game
Just another mutt in your pack of lies
And I knew
I’d never be the son in your eyes
