Who will cry for the little boy? by Antwone Fisher

Saturday, November 20, 2010

I watched the movie "Antwone Fisher" twice actually. The first time I missed a few parts including a part where he initially read this poem. Watching it a second time and in full really put me in tears..especially when he read the poem out loud.. I've a soft heart, I couldn't help it. Anyway, the poem was written by the man himself, Antwone Fisher. In a way it tells of his pain as he was growing up and trying to understand all the why's in his entire young life.. It's sad. Real sad. The story is partly based on his own experience I suppose.

Who will cry for the Little Boy?

excerpt from the movie - courtesy of Youtube

Who will cry for the little boy? Lost and all alone
Who will cry for the little boy? Abandoned without his own
Who will cry for the little boy? He cried himself to sleep
Who will cry for the little boy? He never had for keeps

Who will cry for the little boy? Who walked the burning sand
Who will cry for the little boy? The boy inside the man
Who will cry for the little boy? Who knows well hurt and pain
Who will cry for the little boy? Who died and died again

Who will cry for the little boy? A good boy he tried to be
Who will cry for the little boy? Who cries inside of me


ps: a literature worth discussing..
