My life was no fun
My fears would make me run.
Until out of the blue
I met you.
I became a foster child not once but twice
When I hurt myself you gave me ice.
You helped me learn
Everything I get I earn.
I am a little bit sad
Sometimes I get a little bit mad.
Me and my brothers would hit and hit
Until one day we got split.
We see each other often
We all need a correction.
Ive learnt a lot of things
And my foster carer says
Teamwork makes the dream work.
I do much better now in foster care
I smile most days
I hope you can do a favour
And help people to become more able
And children who have lost hope
And start believing
Bring them in and give them a second chance in life.
