A thirteen-year-old girl
So young, so beautiful and free
The world laid at her feet
Pressurissed by today's cruel society
Slipped up and gave in
Let a boy do more than hold her hand
Now she's a mother before she's due
Oh! How life is grand!
A young boy, seventeen
The brains and manners of a man
His heart in the right place
Helping and doing whatever he can
Got a college place, no problem
Dreams and aspirations way past lust
Shot dead by some jealous foe
Yes, life is surely just.
A single mother, four kids
Working two jobs to keep them alive,
Holding her head above a heavy heart
Telling them they will survive
Left stranded and in love
No sign of the daddy anywhere
Gone in a rush of wind
No doubt, life is definately fair.
A charming individual
Fourteen and has his own mind
Is a little eccentric, no lie
Still manages to be sweet and kind
Beaten down by peers
Made to feel worthless as if he should
Takes a knife to end the pain
Don't you think life is so good?
