Hey, little boy, it’s okay to cry.
Things will get better by and by.
As an adult, you’ll have a say
In what happens every day.
You’ll find people you can trust
In your future who are just.
You’ll find people who are kind,
And they’ll keep you in mind
When besieged by other things.
Learn to trust what caring brings.
Make life be as you want it to be.
You’ll be strong enough and free
To meet life’s challenges face to face,
And live life at your own pace.
Tomorrow is closer than you think.
Keep that thought when it seems you’ll sink
Into the darkness of despair
And start to believe nobody cares.
Today hold tight to your self-respect.
Find someone and try to connect.
Tell your story to someone nice.
Be real honest and it will suffice.
Remember what happened is not your fault.
One day soon it will come to a halt.
Don’t give up when you feel the pain.
Just pretend you are on a train
That is speeding away to another place
Where God will bless you with His grace.
Imagine the things you might see
As you pass by mountains and the sea.
Pretend you’re an eagle in the sky.
Spread your wings and really try
To feel the wind beneath your wings,
And smell fresh flowers in the spring.
Remember always your soul is good
For you’ve done all a little boy could
To get away and save your soul.
It’s someone else who isn’t whole;
Someone else who is hard and cruel;
And someone else broke all the rules.
Some man damaged your kind heart,
And ripped your safe world apart.
So lift your chin and believe in you.
You are like the sky so blue…..
Rare, beautiful, and true.
Some man did what he shouldn’t do.
Nestle yourself in Christ’s strong arms
And ply Him with your sweet charms.
Try to survive every single day.
A better future is coming your way.
