|I lay here in the night..
darkness and fear surrounding me..
my thoughts turn to the people that make me who I am..
one family that birthed me..
people filled with pain and fear..
hate and shame..
years of darkness..
giving only the same
then the family that choose me..
took me in and held me as one of their own..
people of love and laughter..
giving and receiving joy and comfort..
helping and comforting..
years of light..
one giving me closed spaces..
cold hurting thoughts..
one giving me the room to grow..
warm hopeful thoughts..
my eyes close..
and I sleep.. safe..
knowing that someone is out there..
