Do For Love


Lost child lost in these torn streets apart
Splashed on the scene showing all his hunger
He could have ran away but instead remained in abundance
He could have dropped out of school but that never went his way
So he put on his shoes just to exercise his thoughts
On his way out his brothers caught him before he could get far
He tried to fight his way through but his anger got the worst of him
But the comfort of my aunt calmed me down
He had a lot of issues, majority with his mother
Whenever he went out of line
She locked me out just for the punishment
But the day came when he fell back into his neighbours arms
Before that he hit the road for the big city
But never got far hoping to catch his dream
Who knows where he would be right now
Trying to find his way back home?
He was restless, lost in heart and mind
And all he wanted was to patch the time with his mother
He had been disappointed by her for a lot of things
Even burnt up all his work because she never appreciated his dream

“What could you do, do for love
You would try everything, to get some love”

He once had a dream, a dream of his father
Life! He would show him, Living! He would direct him
But a fatherless path he got in his curriculum of life
A fatherless path others could relate
A heart grown cold, he has got a clear conscious
But most days his heart travels at a different rate
Decisions he made always determined his path
As that is what made him the man he is today
And even though he has no love for the other side
Karma might return the favour and play its part
He would have to face an image of that path
Never looking over his shoulder
Face the religion he created and respected without panicking
For he believed to be living in a bittersweet world
And home is where the heart is when he fell apart
His mind being simple and let things play their part
Most-times he would let go his path foolishly as he steered along
But later get back on course and wish past its foolishness
As he wrote notes, pasted them on the wall and went to bed

“What could you do, do for love
You would try everything, to get some love”
