Turning the Tide


Please don’t call me ma’am, boy,
Please don’t call me ma’am.
It makes me older than I am, boy,
So please don’t call me ma’am.

Please don’t call me boy, ma’am
Please don’t call me boy.
I am a grown man, ma’am,
So please don’t call me boy.

Bad habits of a time gone by,
Hard to break, make no mistake;
A mind make-over is taking place
And very soon there’ll be no trace
Of muddy footprints from the past.

Ragged Boy

Beggar boy -- he wasn't very happy. :( Pictures, Images and Photos

Ragged Boy

Little boy in ragged clothes
Limping in the heat
Arms and legs cloaked in sores
From living in street

His skin is marked with scars
Calluses beneath his feet
You cannot see the thickened skin
That grows around his heart
