Their Just Kids
The bases are loaded, the die has been cast.
Mom and Dad cannot help them, they stand all alone.
A hit at this moment would send their team home.
The ball meets the plate, the player swings and misses.
There's a groan from the crowd, with some boos and some hisses.
A thoughtless voice cries, "Strike out the bum."
Tears fill their eyes, the game's no longer fun.
So open up your heart and give them a break,
for it's moments like this, an adult you can make.
Please keep this in mind when you hear someone forget,
Their just kids, and not adult yet.
