A young homeless child
Looking for a home but finds none
On my first day at school the mother's not around
To comfort me when I'm down-right scared
An innocent child of seventeen
I find myself locked up in a placement
An innocent child now afraid of time
Will I forget my goals and dreams?
I go to MAryhurst
And meet people who care
I learn about peer pressure and much more
Now comes the time
To break through...
The fear

I wrote this while I was at Maryhurst, a placement for girls.
