A Second Chance

I was raised in darkness and deceit. 

For the first 6 years not a speck of love was around me.

It wasn't until I was older, that's when they found me.

Kindness, peace, love, gentleness, and patience. 

Oh how they needed such patience with me. 

I was broken, but over time I was mended. 

From the start I was scared and abandoned, 

but they were always searching and they found me.

No longer do I feel alone because I now have a forever home.

This poem is about: 
My family
