By Michael Henderson, Malvern, AR

It was if I was not there
As I stood there wondering
What could I have done diffrently
Was it me or her?

The time went by fast
The judge asked
Who do you want to live with
My childhood flashed through my mind
I thought no

As the words slipped out of my mouth
I felt a great weight off my shoulders
I was free at last

I think that the vibe of the piece is just so great. It really makes you think about what he went through as a child. Michael I am sorry. I love this piece of work it is one of my favorites.
