"You'll see him on weekends,"
Is all that she said
She's using his child to get in his head
Though the loss of his child makes him wish we were dead
He'll use those dark feelings to bring change instead
A flicker of hope is how he survives
The promise of freedom could change both their lives
The pain that torments him, his sorrow and strife
Could all fade away when the truth comes to light
His truth was a concept, too hard to explain
So he turns to his God to relinquish his pain
There's nothing to lose, and the whole world to gain
His country, his world, says, "your prayers are in vein."
This is the struggle no parent should face
He's got strangers putting him back in his place
Though fighting this fight has him down for a while,
There can only be hope for this father and child.
