A very powerful poem from a Kinship Carer

KINSHIP CARERS

KINSHIP CARERS, BURDEN SHARERS

WELFARE WOUNDED, NOT EXCLUDED,

ADVICE IS NICE, WITH RICE & SPICE,

A PAMPERED CHAT, BUT MORE THAN THAT

A PROBLEM SHARED, IS A SOLUTION DARED…

FAMILIES NOT ALONE

AS KINSHIP’S COMMUNITY SPIRIT HAS GROWN

A DAY AT THE SEASIDE, A TRIP TO THE ZOO

LUNCH WITH A DRINK AMONGST SMILES,

FAMILY TROUBLES AND WOES FORGOTTEN

WELL….AT LEAST FOR A WHILE

GIRLS & BOYS…NOW WOMEN & MEN

TURNED OUT FOR THE BETTER, FOR THE TIME WHEN…

THEY CAME THROUGH KINSHIP DOORS

WITH CARERS & NANS… TO SHARE THEIR FEARS

WITH TALES OF ABUSE AND MISUSE

REVEALED THROUGH EMPATHY, TEA THROUGH TEARS

AND.. KINSHIP WILL CONTINUE

TO TAKE A NURTURING LEAD

SO LONG AS SOCIETY’S BROKEN SYSTEM

CONTINUES TO SUPPLY THE NEED
