Ignorance Was The Difference

Wonder how my mom raised this im not a bastard I was just fatherless but she always came through times 2 never rest big bro can attest she held me on her chest we all got through cuz her hearts ours nest can't rip good memories into shreds love from the inside out
Provided me a bed and a couch invited me to life as a child pops was around no divorce filed happiness contagious like my 2 year old smile haven't seen him in such a long while 93 that year was so good but in 96 it got wild
Cancer diagnosed god was the judge tribulation with a trial
Put me in my dad shoes what would I do
Knowing the only way to see yo family is if i push through
Honestly I got off easiest I was 2
Hard to miss someone I never knew
 Oh and big bro can't forget about you
You was 9 art and comics only surfing yo mind
Wise enough to understand life at the time
Knowin dad is on the brink of dying
Transformed yo life like optimus prime
Lion king fable your his son that shines
And me I was just the son that's blind
Ignorance was the difference
