Lately I’ve found that to love someone is to put yourself up for heart break. Loving someone is so hard that sometimes I wonder if it will easier for me to just not care. Working in the social work sector, people are often told not to love kids, and only to like them to protect themselves. I don’t think I can do that though, because then I wouldn’t be putting my wholehearted effort into helping them.
Watching a kid you know literally walk down the wrong path is so heart breaking. Words cannot describe that feeling, when you deeply love and care about someone but no matter how you try you can’t reach out to them, and with every moment of everyday it seems like they’re getting farther and farther away. This is heart break.
Scratch: I’m petit frère of the opposite spectrum.
Petit frère I’ve been running since forever
Running so to make my family’s life a little better
Trying not to make my parents’ efforts go in vain
Livin’ life so hard so I could relieve them of their pain.
Petit frère they ask me “why you growing up so fast?
No time for me to party, I ain’t got no time to relax
I work for the money not for cars, booze or bling,
I don’t need your swagger, not your yolo, no things.
I’m the little brother of the opposite spectrum
Trying hard to live try to meet my aspirations
But deep down inside I just want to be a kid
But I know that choice is not for me to bid.
I’m petit frère and I have high expectations
But my demand is so high that I’m heaving in exhaustion
And I watch my friends seeing all that they have done
I think to myself, I just want to have fun
I’m petit frère but I’m no longer a child
It’s time to live reality, no more hiding, no more guile.
I just wish God had for me another plan
I just wish I had someone to hold my hand
