I hope you find your way

Traveling Boy

don’t forget to love hard

Traveling Boy

swim beneath ocean tides

Traveling Boy

play violin and strum guitar strings at the same time

Traveling Boy

don’t lose the smile in your morning songs

Traveling Boy

see yourself in everyone’s brown eyes

Traveling Boy

comfort isn’t defined by the sofa’s lack of springs

Traveling Boy

you can always be spider-man

Traveling Boy

spread your wings, fly loudly, away

Traveling Boy

you’ll find your loudest voice in your favorite book

Traveling Boy

let your tears be your redemption

Traveling Boy

there’s no peace in conformity

Traveling Boy

you descend from nobles, their skin the color of the land

Traveling Boy

one day, you’ll be a Traveling Man

Traveling Boy

eat your veggies, fruit, legumes, and seeds

Traveling Boy

i hope honey bear bottles still brings you endless amounts of joy

Traveling Boy

i hope you count the stars — if you see them — and have safe dreams

Traveling Boy

one day this may all make sense

Traveling Boy

don’t forget to watch and ride the trains through the country-side

Traveling Boy

it’ll all make you see tomorrow, today

Traveling Boy, Traveling Boy

you’re not limited to playing “little brown boy” roles for entertainment

Traveling Boy

you’re more beautiful that you know

Traveling Boy

one day you’ll be a Traveling Man

one day, Traveling Boy, you’ll be a Beautiful Black Traveling Man
