Excerpt from Everyman's Child

A Soliloquy

I am Everyman's Child.
I did not ask to come, but I am here.
I arrived on this earth like every other child.
I have been sent from pillar to post.
I have been in many places.
I am able-bodied and healthy.
If I have the right to be born, I have other rights:
I have the right to play.
I have the right to have clothes like other children.
I have the right to the loving care of people who are interested in me, but I am the ward of the state - Society.
I am put in a house of a thousand children, but not the home of one.
I am the child of the Institution.
When I am sixteen, Society will have finished with me.
It will send me forth to brave the battle.
I start handicapped with the sign of the asylum.
Shall all who are born like me suffer the sorrows of No Man's Child?
