An older poem of mine that I wrote while I was still in foster care.

Hear Me, See Me

Maybe I'm a child; maybe I'm a kid;

maybe I don't know what psychopathology is.

But I have two eyes and I have two ears;

Believe it or not I can see and hear

And I understand you Even when you say I won't.

You can't underestimate me because I'm eight years old.

Maybe children are meant to be seen And never ever heard.

But how can you find us If we don't say a word?

—This is a poem I wrote when I was much younger and still in foster care. One of the few worth holding on to from my “beginner years” as a poet. The title is the only new addition.
