The boy nobody helped
Born into a family where yelling was routine
His mother was most violent: with words ever mean
Eyes always swollen when arriving at school
Other kids jeered at him: he looked like a fool.
Always so hesitant when invited to play
Whenever school ended he wanted to stay
Tears began falling when the bus drove away
And brought him back home at the end of the day
Nobody ever questioned him or even asked why
The sight of the school bus caused him to cry
They simply kept silent although everyone knew
Something was wrong but what could they do ?
Where is that little boy now fast forward today
Is he out drinking or in a long prison stay
What could have been done while he was a child
Could it have prevented him from becoming so wild?
