Foster Kids Deserve A Chance - Poem by Patricia Kelley

Foster kids need a chance.
It's not like they're invited to the school dance.
After all, what would they wear?
Life hasn't always been fair.
The other kids would just stare,
Standing there in a trance,
But, what if you could take a child that never had anything?
And give her something.
Like a real home where she felt loved.
Instead of feeling unloved,
Because her parents made bad choices,
What if we raised our voices?
And said, give this child a second chance.
Maybe, other kids would take a second glance.
And the foster child would be invited to the school dance,
Dressed in a new dress colored pink,
She'd make everyone blink.
She'd be like a beautiful discovered jewel.
Not suffering from the cruel.
She'd have to follow the Golden Rule.
Love, live and laugh a lot
