Short Poems

A New Home
A place to call my own
A family to love and care
No more fears of the unknown
In my heart, happiness to bear

Broken Bonds
Torn away from all I knew
Stripped of identity and name
In this unfamiliar place I view
A constant search for belonging to claim

A Mother’s Love
She may not have given birth
But her love is just as true
Her arms a place of worth
A mother in all she’ll do

A Bright Future
Each day a step towards hope
The past fading into the background
With support and love, I’ll cope
A bright future ahead, profoundly profound.

Medium Poems

1. “A Temporary Home”

They come to us with broken hearts
Their trust and love ripped apart
A new family they must embrace
While longing for their own safe place

We give them shelter, warmth, and care
Though for them it’s hard to bear
The thought of leaving all they know
To start anew with strangers so

But in our hearts we hold them close
And hope that soon their world will glow
With joy, with love, with family ties
And endless nights of lullabies

2. “Invisible Children”

They walk among us, unseen and unknown
Though their stories are written stone by stone
Of loneliness, heartache, and despair
Of being unwanted, forgotten, unfair

They dream of homes with loving arms
Of safety, love, and simple charms
But day by day they’re lost in the crowd
With no one to turn to, no one around

Oh, let us see them, these invisible kids
Let us open our hearts, our homes, our lids
For they are our future, our hope, our youth
And we must show them they are worth the truth

3. “A Forever Family”

It takes a village, they always say
To raise a child, to light the way
But when that village is not enough
A forever family is what they love

Someone to hold them, love them, guide
Through all the ups and downs of life
Someone to kiss their tears away
And make them feel that they can stay

Stay in this world with hope and joy
With love and care, a true envoy
For every child deserves a chance
To grow, to shine, to learn to dance

So let us be that family dear
Let us wipe away their every tear
Let us love them, that’s all they need
A forever family to help them succeed.

Long Poems

A Home of Hope

We are the children who have been lost
Abandoned by those who should have been the closest
Left to wander and search for a home
But all we found were walls made of stone

We are the ones who long to belong
To feel the warmth of love, to hear a familiar song
To have a family who will always be there
To laugh with us, to show us they care

We are the youth who have been taken away
From the only world we’ve ever known, forced to stray
Left in the care of strangers, in a place unknown
Wondering if we’ll ever find a place to call our own

But in this darkness, there is a light
Hope that shines through the haze, burning bright
There are those who open their hearts and homes
Who take us in, and show us we’re not alone

They welcome us with open arms
Offering a chance for a brighter tomorrow, free from harm
They guide us with wisdom, they teach us to grow
To find strength in ourselves, and let our true selves show

With time, we learn to trust once more
To love and be loved, to explore
Our potential, our dreams, our aspirations
With newfound hope, we find inspiration

For within these walls, we build a home of our own
A place where we find belonging, where we’ve grown
A family we choose, bonded by love
Our greatest treasure, sent from up above

So, to all those who have opened their hearts and doors
To the children who have been lost and unsure
We thank you for showing us a home of hope
For giving us a chance and helping us to cope.
