You left me to defend for myself
You left me alone …. I had nothing ,
I was nothing
Dirty surroundings and dirty sheets
You didn’t know the effect it would have on me,
A young girl with an expressionless face,
Bites all over plain to see,
You really think it wouldn’t haunt me,
A Google search is all I need and someone will end up finding me,
My life on show for all to see,
You just left me questioning ; why me ?
Placed into care at a young age,
Would that lead me life astray ?
Placement after placement,
School after school
The years go by in a blink of the eye
The assumptions are made,
Stories are told,
How long until they know ?
A poem by Lauren
