Forget About It

When I was Young, I felt so Old

My Country I came home to seemed so cold

Broken and Torn, like a beat up toy

I had to act like a man, When I was only a boy

Awake or asleep, I was scared as can be

Cause I could remember, what no one should see

Plastic, Metal and Wood are worn by me

So I could readjust and try to be free

Education and Employment is the thing to do

Cause drinking and drugging are taboo

I'll work hard and try to persevere

Day by day turns into Year by Year

Forget the past, that's what I'm told

When I was too young, I felt so old
