Oh what a boy he is,
Everything he couldn't miss,
A name of crown adorned,
But yet still unknown,

Waking up every morn,
Answering to natures call,
Bustling with everyone,
But yet still unknown,

I watched from near and far,
His gaze so cool yet far,
His mind revealing to everyone,
But yet still unknown,

Praying to keep him aloof,
Sitting like a wise fool,
Knowing that's its all on him,
But yet still unknown,

A tear I could not spare him,
For he was fates handling,
Pity I have the luxury,
But yet still unknown,

Staring at the world ahead,
Feeling unsure of what lies in it,
Staying truthful even when it kills,
But yet still unknown,

Enemies waiting at every corner,
For him to slip and falter,
To counter his moves and make him slower,
But yet still unknown,

And then the light dawned on me,
He is a boy everyone could see,
But with what he needs,
Cause he was always known.

But after my making thou write more true!
