Her life was difficult enough you see
What made matters worse
Is when she gave up me
I had never had a chance

Looking at me
To some was just a glance
I wanted to come show myself to all
But to my surprise

I wasn't even worth a call
I would have made life a real joy
The only thing about it
They got rid of me

Who was a healthy baby boy
She could have gave me my father's last name
But instead she feared
Her life with me would never be the same

I forgave her because I knew I was a big risk
It was hard enough not knowing if I would exist
I didn't want to leave this place
That I call home

What made it worse
Was that I was not alone
But in the end
I was happy to be set free
Because I knew God had a home waiting for me
