about

Written for incarcerated youth in Oakland, from the viewpoint of one of the youth's mother.

lyrics

My lips pressed against the glass in between us
Dear son the tears cannot stop pouring
I wish I left better circumstances for you
Alas I know it is what you have chosen

Your golden
And if nobodies ever told you that before
Lemme tell you some more
Little one your golden …chosen

All of the other children unwrapping their presents
Im so guilty sorry I wasn’t present
I got shot when you were the age of 11
Thank you for prayin’ that I make it to heaven

Your golden
And if nobodies ever told you that before
Lemme tell you some more
Little one your golden… chosen

Behind the barred doors you cant stop thinking
Rest easy my child in the midst of boiled anger
Our young blood tormented stains my chest
On bended knees I do confess for us allllllllllllllll

Your golden
And if nobodies ever told you that before
Lemme tell you some more
Little one your golden… chosen
