For the Sleepwalkers Draft 1

For the Kids I Work With

With these lines I want to speak

About the children I work with

The ones society has given up on

But that still need a chance

They have behavioral problems

Cannot function in society right now

But their trauma is what makes life hard

They go through their days

Scared and worried about what terrible

Thing will happen next;

A restraint? Will they run away? Assault?

Their minds however,

Are beautiful works of art

Colors unbenounced to the rest of the world

 paint their dark world bright


Their ability to bounce back

From a world that left them for nothing

They take flight on wings

That start of broken but heal over time


The heart and spirit of these

Children give hope

That those who the world discards

Can still become the very best in it.
