Coincidences, and children's home stigma

It's been an emotional night for me, an article about 221 residents petitioning against a children's home opening really riled me, so much stigma.

I urge everyone to VOTE YES to speak up for children in care to help change public perception if anything. https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/news/stoke-on-trent-news/we-dont-want-troubled-kids-2780667

And then it hit me, I've recently written a fiction story as part of my upcoming book.
This is my first ever teaser of it.
Magical coincidences :)




The Children’s Home



Up at the top of St Peters Road, a set of conifers will hide,
the entrance of the children’s home, that has eight kids inside.
There’s Justin, Sarah, Alfie, Robert, Crystal, Diane, Jax.
And Shane has gone to see his Mum, in three days he will come back.


One day there were three kids inside of the parked kids home car.
On their way to then go to, the next town’s cinema.
The two staff had just quickly gone, to search for their lost keys.
“Has someone took them once again?
If you have then give them please!” 

But no-one had taken the car keys, the staff were soon to see.
But where they had parked up the car, the parking space was free.
They heard some voices shouting loud, the staff ran up the street.
Robert, Diane and Jax jumped out, but Alfie’s in the driving seat.

The car is rolling down the road, he knows of his mistake,
After thinking it was funny, to let off the handbrake.
And push the car on to the road, and send it rolling down.
But now he’s hit a parked up car, and feels a right clown.

The owner then comes rushing out, and then soon calls the police.
“We’re bloody sick of this kid’s home, and we all just want some peace.”
They had complained to the Leatheton Gazette, of their frustrating pain.
But half of the stories weren’t the full truth, and the kid’s home gets the blame.

They had started a petition, and wrote to their MP.
The total people that had signed it were no more than twenty-three.
It was obvious the neighbours there, were kicking up a rage.
“Children’s home gang trouble” was the headline of the front page.

They’d written in the article so much that wasn’t true.
Such as burglaries and break-ins, and a murder suspect too.
 A social worker called Lucille said “Look this just ain’t right.
We’ve got to show people the truth, and put up a good fight.”

So then she hired the Rugby club, for a whole Saturday.
Laid on some entertainment, and put on a big buffet.
Invited all the local neighbours, to meet the kids living at the home.
It was the first time ever in this town, a glimpse of their lives had been shown.

The neighbours had soon come to learn, the stories from in care.
And the feelings of abandonment and the trauma in some there.
Abid Ali offered jobs, fixing phones once they’d turned sixteen.
Diane’s been offered to try out for the young womens rugby team.

 The day went on from ten up until six, a refreshing day in Leatheton for sure.
Now Robert, Sarah and Jax have all found new foster homes,
And the petition don’t exist anymore.

(End) 


There will be a link to my upcoming book in the near future :) Peace and Love
