Toy Soldiers

One day in the dark

I was in my school park

We had a strong bond

but now my father's gone

I had to edure the pain

without that, there's no gain

I felt so helpless, so worthless

my life seemed so meaningless

I was a toy soldier

I was less than my mother

I need my dad

To land on a helipad

never have I felt like this

so less and so a mess

Never felt so mad

people say to not be bad

Im going to do something about it

im going to make them feel it

I wont be a little scared no more

I wont be a TOY SOLDIER
