As a Child to Man, The Turning
"As a Child to Man, The Turning"
When the father is missing
Where goes the child
Walking barefoot wild
on a beach where
all his sandcastles
are washed away
and mothers and sisters
their towers high
he is measured against
the merit of the missing father
and his life lessons discovered
in a bitter prison of learning
as a Child to Man
is the forgiveness
his truth is found
like his lost Ocean
(LadyLabyrinth / 2020)
“Fires are Burning”, No Rest for the Wicked / Ozzie Osbourne
"The introduction to his heartache began as a child
So it's no wonder that he grew up to be so wild.
So he protected his feelings in walls he imagined
But castles crumble exposing the frightened child"
