Sicklemia kidfriend

Today I’m babysitting, can’t recall the last time

He’s a beautiful child, but sickly

Got sickle cell, been on medication from day one

Only three, but the strongest kid I know

He’s fighting, you can see it with the way he’s pushing the damn toy cars around the house

Just crashed the second one, maybe he’s venting in his own little way

Or maybe it’s nothing, he’s just being a normal kid

Mama is out, has to earn a living

Dad ran away, a coward

Or what else would you call such a weak man, tell me.
