A Boy is Born



A Boy is Born

Twas in the city

Of Matagalpa

On a damp, wet night

In the poor side of town

A boy is born

The father long gone

His Mother all alone

He haunted the streets

In Matagalpa

He begged for food

Stole when he could

Learned to be a fighter

To survive the streets

In Matagalpa

Coming of age

He shined shoes

Then joined the army

Told them, he wanted

To be a truck driver

As the years moved on

He saved his money

Bid his time, left the army

Started a trucking business

In Matagalpa

He was now a self-made


The trucks became numerous

The money being made

For the boy, now a man

In Matalgalpa

He married his sweetheart

A daughter was born

He never dreamed of

Raised with love

Promised her an education

That he couldn’t have

A Child’s Prayer


A Child’s Prayer

Dear God

I’m just a little boy

My Papa

He is gone

Just my mama and I

My sister, I do not know

Where she is

Dear God

As I kneel by my bed

To pray to you

My eyes are blurring

The tears they flow

Every night

Dear God

Please help me

Find my papa

My dear sister

They mean the whole world

To me

My papa

My mama

And my sister

Dear God

Please answer my prayers

I love my papa

And my dear sister

Dear God

That is all I want

Is my papa

My sister

To come home

To be with mama and I

Dear God

I do not ask

Much from you

I know you are busy

I am just a little boy

My heart aches

For my family

Dear God

They are all I have

All I want

To be with

My papa

My mama

My sister

Thank you God
