Little Big Man By Jasen Sousa

Little Big Man


Little man, you don’t always have to act like a big man.

Little man, don’t try to grow up too fast,
you’re living through the best times of your life, make them last!
Little man, don’t always feel like there is someone you have to impress,
be satisfied with yourself and don’t ever second guess.
Little man, you don’t always have to look good for the ladies,
trying to appear perfect all the time will end up driving you crazy.

Little man, you don’t always have to act like a big man.

Little man, you don’t always have to be bad to get in with the cool crowd,
staying silent without being defiant can sometimes speak just as loud.
Little man, don’t let the world make you feel so small,
if you have no one to talk to, remember, you can always give me a call.
Little man, don’t let others drag you under.
Little man, your little heart is such a small wonder!

Little man, you don’t always have to act like a big man.

Little man, don’t let mean words upset you,
it’s not just a dream, someday people will respect you.
When you feel like you have no strength left, that’s when you stay strong.
It doesn’t seem like it now, but you will find a place where you belong.
Little man, it’s not cool to act dumb and not get good grades,
they’ll end up as nobodies and you will march in millions of parades.

Little man, you don’t always have to act like a big man.

Little man, there is no one like you in the whole universe,
remember that when things get bad and when things get worse.
Little man, if you’re lost for words when they call you a freak,
think for a moment and tell them you’re unique!
Little man, you were built with priceless gifts!
Little man, I insist, there is a reason why you exist.

Little man, you don’t always have to act like a big man.
