I saw my brother cry today.
He seemed five years old
It did not seem to me that he was six feet tall.
He lost a thing he treasured,
I saw it in his eyes.
To see my brother hurt,
It made me want to cry.
Love is not measured in how tall you are,
Or how far around your arms go.
When you hug someone that you love so.
But how much it hurts to let something you love go.
I want my brother to know that he
Is loved by all, especially me.
I saw my brother cry today.

My name is Kendra and I have a sister and a brother. I just got put into a foster home. I'm scared, and I don't know what to do. I'm away from my mom. I cry every night. I don't know what to do. My friends are with me however much they can be, but there is only so much they can do. I don't know what to do. I'm so lost. My stomach hurts; so does my heart. I look tired all the time. Why is it that people start to pay more attention to you when you are hurt, but they don't ever have the time to ask how your day is when you aren't hurt. I'm so confused. I don't know what to do.
