Foster Child

Location

"Foster child! Foster child" "I wish you never came here"
"Not my sister, Not my sister!" "Mom, don't call her dear"

Echoes in the hallways, begging for a tear
Water in the bathtub, wash away my fear

Hear the screams in agonizing pain
Praying for a miracle...all in vain

Not wanted, not loved
Walking in the store, always getting shoved

Always wrong, never right
Not strong enough, can't put up a fight

Moving houses, changing clothes
Trying to cover up these holes

Thoughts inside, "It'll be fine"
God, I beg you, give me a sign.
