I`m 16, and have always had a knack for writing. I am hoping to sharpen my skills and come out with a new perspective of myself as a writer.
This is a very personal piece I`ve written about two years ago. There is a response from two years after titled "It`s easy to understand" written as well.

It`s Hard to Explain
It`s hard to explain to someone who has no clue
Saying your mother and father have been stripped from you
You had no chance to say goodbye
Only to sit in the back of a CPS car and cry
Crying all the way into a foster home
Then all the way to grandma`s home
Spending a year there
Meeting your parents anywhere
Just wondering, why would they leave me?
But I got older
My mind grew with the years
Now I know, nothings worth my tears
To this day
I still don`t understand
Would think it`s okay
To make a 5 year old believe they aren`t wanted
To make a 5 year old believe their mom and dad aren`t coming back
Thoughts of suicide come at any age
But the age of 5 has to be the worst
When you find yourself bending metal clothes hangers to fit your neck.
And when you find yourself, at the age of 5, creating a way to hang yourself from the ceiling fan from a series of hangers all made by hand.
But it`s hard to explain to someone who wouldn`t understand.
