Kingston told Blues and Soul magazine about this song, regarding the hardship of watching his mother and sister being sent to prison when he was just 15 years old: "I always had my brother. But, when my mother and sister went away, it took a lot out of me: My sister went away for four months, while my mom has been away for over two years now (allegedly for either tax evasion or identity fraud). But, while I missed her like crazy, I actually used that as my motivation for writing that song. I'm basically telling her 'We've been through a lotta stuff and the struggle's been crazy. But don't cry - everything's gonna be cool.' While in the verses I'm also explaining to other people how the whole situation put me under pressure. You know, while most people around 14/15 have their mom around them, go to school and live a normal life, I was homeless doing lawnmower services - cutting grass and doing whatever I had to do to get money."
