He’s been flying high since he was 14,
Started as “Every blue moon”
But it seemed that the moon got as blue as the sea when days went off,
And since then it’s been drop outs, lost jobs, failed pee tests, and lack of aspirations.
There’s been debt, fighting, shooting, mother’s tears, and time spent shooting up.
He’s a screw up;
He’s from school to school to clinic to rehab to cell and back to his mother’s basement.
He’s a disappointment;
Broke the hearts of his mother, his sweetheart, the pastor, his father the big hero,
And even got his sister in college hooked…
