I was walking in the park

And I saw a little boy.

His hair was a mess.

His face was full of joy.


He was talking to himself

With no one in sight.

In his hand was a toy.

He was setting things right.


He said to the soldier

Made of plastic in his hand:

“I know you think I’m weak,

But you’ve got to understand.


I’m nine years old, going on ten

I’m taking care of all, the best I can.

Nobody cares what happens to me.

I’m trying to become a decent man.


It takes a lot of courage

To learn to cope

With a life without love,

Yet still have hope.”
