I Am But A Boy - Poem by Louie Wiggins

When he was a young boy his father taught him to pray from his heart
He used very big words for his age of 8
Like chosen righteous and multitudinous
Be strong prove yourself to be a man
Heartened by the verse of a gallant man
His confidence stimulated by such powerful words
The young boy swells his mind with good sense and reason
To motion his words to consider in prayer

Lord in heaven and upon the earth
You are Majestic Loving and Kind
The lord of your servant a man stands before You
As model of Your gracious reflection
The fine silk of a king will inspire a boy
As these young eyes behold a future
The way of nobility and honor among men
To walk in the footsteps of my father my friend

My king my king of the people placed in your hands
Has your stronghold come to its end
Startled by the reality and the truth of it all
I am but a boy
At a breadths length to the throne
