Don't Retract Pack

He's Just a Little Boy

He stands at the plate with his heart pounding fast; 
The bases are loaded; the die has been cast. 
Mom and Dad cannot help him; he stands all alone. 
A hit at this moment would send the team home. 

The ball nears the plate; he swings and he misses. 
There's a groan from the crowd, with some boos and hisses. 
A thoughtless voice cries, "Strike out the bum!"
Tears fill his eyes; the game's no longer fun. 

Remember - he's just a boy who stands all alone.

So open your heart and give him a break.
For it's moments like this a man you can make.
Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget:
He's just a little boy, not a man yet.
