Forgive

A poem by M., a 17-year-old ward of the court in Los Angeles, relates the emotional pain wrought by drug addiction, neglect, and experiencing the loss of an estranged parent. “As we were driving to the hospital I was asking why, but nobody would look me in the eyes.” The poem comes from The Beat Within and is posted on Youth Radio.
