Being In Foster Care - Poem by Naomi Short

I've been in care since September the 8th 2003,
all because no one can take care of me,
not even my mammy or daddy.

I miss them very much,
I just want to feel their closeness and touch.

Even though they were neglectful to me,
I don't care because they are still my biological family.

Sometimes I wish I could have contact,
but I change my mind and this is a fact.

Maybe one day soon I will see,
what they really mean to me.

This is a poem about my family.
