This poem was written by a child who was in the care system over 20 years ago. He was 9 when he wrote it, he had spent over 6 years in the care system. The words are simple, honest and direct. One year after writing this he was adopted by a loving couple. He was given a loving home, with an idyllic childhood and a superb education.
