A knock on the door
Knock. Knock. Knock.
Granny rushed to answer it
Screaming. Screaming. Screaming.
“What the hell took you so long?”
Complaining. Complaining. Complaining.
Our social worker drew us close
Protecting. Protecting. Protecting.
Pushed out the door- no hug, no kiss, no goodbye
Rejected. Rejected. Rejected.
Tears streaming down my face
Sobbing. Sobbing. Sobbing.
Driven to the case manager’s office
Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
A woman took my little sister away
Breaking. Breaking. Breaking.
A family took my little brother in
Weeping. Weeping. Weeping.
One final promise made- “I’ll get us back together!”
Promises. Promises. Promises.
Alone I waited, my soul getting older from the pain
Aging. Aging. Aging.
My foster dad showed up and drove us to his farm
Defeated. Defeated. Defeated.
The worst is yet to come…
Dejected. Dejected. Dejected.
Years spent going from home to home
Unwanted. Unwanted. Unwanted.
