Life As Me - Poem by Sarah Selinger

im so use to being hurt its nothing new
my life youll learn that i been through alot and still going strong
my dad never around even when i was young, he acted like we werent his kids
my siblings fight like cats and dogs, i grew up with four boys although there were more siblings then four
holidays were the worst all of us under one roof
my best friend got shout at 14 and the one who killed him didnt get the right punishment he got off way to easy but the worse the was he died right in front of me and he wasnt just my bestfriend he was like my brother
my house burned down twice in less than 3 months haveing to move starting over when you have nothing left to give but you have to hold on because in the end it will work starting a new school and not knowing anyone
getting stared at because your the new kid being made fun of at the worse time
started high school nobody to lean on when i needed someone the most being pushed away and feeling like your an outkast in your own family, having people intrude in your home and taking your place as the baby although im not a baby, im the youngest being left out because your parents have to take care of someone elses kids bceause thier parents are druggies, getting ran out of your home because of the space issue not enough room but yet im 18 and living on my own but after all is said and doneim still strong and keepping my head held high
