Favelado

The boys’ got a gun

because

he’s got to get money for his family-

to live, to eat, to exist. He’s not doing this because he’s greedy.

He’s a needy boy from the favela.

He’s not mad

because

he doesn’t know who is his dad.

We he robs the girl on the street corner,

you can see in his eyes he was once a dreamer.

But now he doesn’t know who to be,

wishing anyone would be able to see,

this is not who he wanted to be.
