A boy walks along his chosen road
Young lad forever chasing footballs
Loud music blaring from the speakers
That was me

Leaving home brings home his laundry
Lived a life that should have killed him
Rode metal horses in bright colours
That was me

Saved by pledging life unto the green
Walked proud roads that could have killed him
Rode metal stallions into many battles
That was me

Before the mirror stands an old man
Who’s walked his road and lived his life
Stare as refection stares proudly back
It is me
