"Go forth son. Lead your life. Battle your demons and don't let the bastards get you down. Walk the hard road and find strength within yourself. Don't swallow your pride for nobody. This world is a cruel, cruel place and it will eat you whole. Be strong now son. I believe in you."
But father I'm scared.
Scared of what this word's become.
Scared of the future and what its hands are holding out for me.
You see, I'm still a young boy.
Not ready to carve my own path.
But what can I do when failure is all I have ever known?
And what is worse is I don't even know how to try.
How to put my heart and soul into something I truly believe.
It breaks my heart.
So now I'm one of the boys, fragile and thin.
Wishing I wasn't stuck here.
They taught me to dream, taught me to bleed.
But the truth in my heart as desperate, as empty, as loveless as it may be.
I can't do this all on my own.
I need you next to me.
