Oh How I hear you complain!
About how Life is doing you wrong
Life is so tough
and you deserve better
You got that wrong!
Did you grow up
with a Mother who was
beaten by your dad?
Then hated you for still loving him
and told you that you were bad
Have you ever lost a child?
killed by another’s hand
been assaulted by a doctor
then moved to a foreign land
Have you ever tried to save your Mother?
being killed and left to die
With criminals who were stealing from her
and not caring as she cried
Have you ever been homeless?
as rain flooded your small caravan out
left without a home of your own
and your future filled with doubts
Have you had to struggle on?
Without another close at hand
No-one there to hold you
no-one to understand
Have you ever faught situations
that caused children to suffer so
then when your fears were proven right
Family Services let you go
Can you claim to have gone through
anything that remotely compares?
You Can't you tell me you know the feeling?
BUT I’ll tell YOU now
