Son

by Bianca Delarosa

Son, before you go

There are things
 
I must let you know,
 
Like what to do just in case
 
A policeman sees your face.
 
Smile big and nod,
 
Put your hands up to god
 
Donít dress to be noticed,
 
Donít be assertive
 
I know you know this
 
I repeat myself because I love you
 
And I have no idea, what else to do
 
I canít protect you if Iím not there
 
And believe me they donít care
 
About your talents or your smarts
 
Your funny jokes, your kind heart
 
Look down, shut your mouth
 
Donít grab for something
 
Donít grab for nothing
 
Donít move too fast
 
Donít move too slow
 
I donít wanna have to go

To your funeral
