Foster Kid Phoenix

Foster Care sucks & I survived.

we’re not throwaway kids

they threw me into the world naked and I’m still learning how to deal

they take you from your broken home and break you down
kill your spirits and throw you to the wolves
left for dead,
crawling and crying and damn near dying
dead inside, lifeless eyes
but somehow we learn to walk
slowly on wobbly unsure limbs
we seek warmth but are too cold
wary and untrusting
we survive against the odds
and learn how to love
