Set Him Free

Location



 


The tears of a single mother run down her red cheeks


Her son


Her son accused of an armed robbery


She trembles in fear blaming their home, blaming poverty


The negative influences that surround him


The drugs? she’s astounded


He sells them


because he no longer wants to see his mom’s blood sweat and tears


He is now in charge of bringing the bread home but with no high school diploma


No one wants to hire him no one wants to hear


hear his life story and why he does what he does


But I do


I crave his knowledge and a sneak peak into his world


Every single event that impacted his life,his dreams


He regrets it all


Never thought he’d fall this hard


wants to go back to mommas womb


It’s too late now


We sit in the court room


I stand up


I have gained his knowledge


I hold his dreams, his fears


Every goal he wants to fulfill


I will get him back on his feet, I will set him free


As a juvenile defense attorney


I will no longer tolerate seeing his family suffer


It is now all up to me


He will be free
