About me

What about me, what about me?
You took me off my family
To be the best I can be.

What about me, what about me?
I want to see my family.
I want them close to me.

I’m sitting in this room
I don’t know what to say.
They are all pointing the finger
Mostly at my dad Ray

Please, please let me talk.
I want to see mummy and daddy
Or I promise you I will walk.

Everyone is always telling me
This is for the best.
I don’t know what to do
I just need to get this off my chest.

Social workers, teachers, nurses and
parents too, Support workers, foster
carers, supervising social workers and
principal officers too,
This poem is for you.

EH maybe next time think about what
we’re going through.
