Real Foster Parent Poems

"Just Like You"

Written by:  Jamie Holben

(Foster Father - Martinsburg, WV)

I hurt, I cry, I don’t know why,

Just ripped out of all I knew,

You want me to act like you?

 

My mommy was wrong,

My daddy doesn’t care,

You want me to act like you?

 

You don’t understand,

They did what they could,

You want me to act like you?

 

You’re not my mom,

You’re not my dad,

You want me to act like you?

 

I am okay,

Now leave me alone,

I don’t want to be like you.

 

I was doing fine,

I can take care of myself,

I don’t want to be like you.

 

I don’t want to hug,

Don’t hold my hand,

I don’t want to be like you.

 

Just take me back,

You don’t understand,

I don’t want to be like you.

 

Don’t leave me alone,

Don’t put me behind,

I just want to be like you.

 

Just hold me close,

Please hold me tight,

I just want to be like you.

 

It’s not fair,

My parents didn’t care,

I just want to be like you.

 

Please don’t give up,

You’re all that I’ve got,

I just want to be like you.
