“Just A Kid”
Special thanks to Marian Barber with Advocates for Children for sharing this artwork.


“Just A Kid”
Just a kid.
Abused and forgotten.
Just a kid that was marked on.
Lost and confused in a dark room.
Just a kid wondering what she did wrong.
Scared and wounded.
Just a kid who believed she was worthless.
Crying with hate.
Just a kid who put her feelings into cutting herself.
Wondering what to do.
Just a kid who hid her scars and acted like everything was ok.
Just a kid who got taken away from her family.
Just a kid who saw the yellow Safe Place sign.
Just a kid that went to Flowering Branch and learned she isn’t just a kid.
