Trailer parks and welfare checks
Hand-me-downs and second-best
Drunken fights and broken bones
Lonely nights and faulty homes

Above it all, I plan to soar
Through wind, through rain, I'll cry no more
From the ashes, see me rise
With angel wings, watch me fly.

This was inspired by my childhood, though it is not based on my childhood. I hope you understand the difference.

Ive recently made a change to this poem. The last line should read "with wings of wisdom, watch me fly."
