Hardest thing in the world to do, but at times it's the best thing to do.

Some people, 
like parents, do have a hard time letting go,
and I understand why this is so.
No one wants to let go,
of someone they love so.

But the wisest thing to do at times is,
to let go,
so the child will grow.

There are tons of crazy spoiled young boys,
who won't work for their own toys,
then come and try to take your toys.

Oh, I can't afford a car,
so I'll just carjack this mans car.
Well baby boy,
if you come for my toy,
I'm going to make you a decoy,
for the undertaker,
and the grave yard maker.

My spoiled nephew,
told me right to my face in jail during a visit,
"wouldn't nobody give me nothing."
Where did he get this idea that life was suppose to give him everything and he wasn't suppose to earn his way as a grown man?

He got it from my mother,
and his grandmother,
who is my don't want to let go mother,
who does smother,
and spoil a child to death,
for her own selfish health.

Being a spoil brat maybe ok with you,

But I'd rather be a responsible man,
and take care of my own can.

I don't give a crap about someone not wanting to let go.
The truth is,
 if you don't have your head up your own selfish ass,
You'll teach a kid how to pass.
Make him responsible,
so he won't be irresponsible.

Then others may get to keep their keys!

Oh yes, I see these kids every day...
they think the world owes them a

or a good role model.
