Da Moment U Were Born...


Da moment U were born,
I was in a cell,
with my heart so torn.

1 of da guards
gave me da news,
having mixed emotions
but mostly, I'm just blue.

I'm just a child myself,
feeling so confused,
don't know what 2 say or what 2 do.

I'm sorry 4 not being there
when U took your 1st step,
or to clam U down, when U were upset.

Sorry,
I have never been a real father,
either because of my legal status or because your mother.

Don't judge them, I know its hard,
just wish we didn't have to be so far apart.

Da moment u were born,
was da happiest moment in my life,
Regardless of where I found myself
at that point and time.
