poetry is a diary written out loud

she wants to know
and she wants to go
but everybody thinks she'll grow
to this new place
she wants to find out
she wants to learn
but shes still trying to see there faces
its hard to see
and its hard to try
when shes looking for her mom
and if shes even alive
she has to stay strong
she doesnt want to cry
she wants to fight
because they all think
they know her life
she wants to belong
she feels so wrong
at least she made it throght
another cloudy day

this is for foster kids that have nearly everything taken away from them right before there eyes. not only do you change but your hole life changes faster than you can blink . this poem is about a girl in foster care who moves from home to home. while all of this is happeneing she is worried that her mom may no longer be alive. the one thing her mom said to her before she got taken away was" you guys are my life, without you lifes not worth living " everyday she fears someone will find her mother dead.
