On My Way

Some never ever get this far
Some never ever see their star
But I’m on my way.
I never thought I’d ever get this far
I never thought I’d see my star
But I’m on my way
On my way to freedom!

Never knew this was my place
Never knew I was here to stay
But I’m on my way.
Some never ever find their place
Some never ever are there to stay
But they’re on their way
On their way to freedom!

Never ever give up hope
Always find some love to hold
You’re on your way.
You’ll find a family of love
You’ll always find one to hug
You’re on your way
On your way to freedom!

Now just give them a chance
Maybe you’ll find that you’ve been blessed
You’ve found your way.
Now go and live your life
Go and use this advice
Now go your way
You way to freedom!

A True Friend

by Jasmine Fink

When you need a helping hand,
When you feel all alone.

You need a friend to help you along.

When you need someone to talk to,
To get you past your fears.

You need a true friend.

A true friend helps you,
When no one else will.

They respect you and your space,
And will always respect your decisions.

A true, true friend. A true friend.

Questions – A Song-Poem by a Young Adoptee

questions-song-poem-by-young-adoptee-facebook

Why did she have to leave me?
Why did she have to go?
Did she not love me?
Why did I have to leave mom?

These questions will always haunt me.
It’s so unfair!
Why did they hurt me?!
Why did she burn me?

The questions of foster kids always haunt them.
They always hurt them. Hurt me.

I want to help you get through this.
I know what it is like,
Feeling all alone.
That dark place weighing you down,
With all these questions.

You just want answers.
Some you will never know.
Don’t keep these questions to yourself.
Tell someone close to you.

I just want to say,
I’m here to help you.
I went through it too.
You’re not alone.
I’m here with so many others.
You’re not alone.
This dark place can be brought to light.
It can be cured.
It can be fixed.

Questions can be answered,
If you ask.
