Worth

Not kept at his birth
He lives in state care 
Feels he is not loved
Keeps quiet as he grows
School can see his pain

New plan for him
More help at school
Read books at night
See a new world

Top in class
New friends love
Finds his voice

At last
Feels his

Worth

Nice redemption poem. Did you mean quiet instead of quite?

Yes, I did mean quiet. Good catch and it has been corrected. Thanks for letting me know and for your comment.

Warren, you have described many little ones I know who wish they lived in state care, because they have survived without the basics - food, water, love, or hope. I am so glad that DH has "made it in this diminished hexaverse. I want all of them to "make it". It reads like a Horatio Alger story which always has a delightful ending.
