There isn't much really but I have some things I want to change
I started to get into trouble because of the stupid things I was doing. My carers - the people who look after me - didn't like these things. I started smoking and got in with the wrong crowd. Then I did something very stupid; I started to dabble with drugs. BIG MISTAKE. Now I want to change everything so I can be a good kid and be trusted. All I want is for people to trust me. I just want to be a normal 16 year old and live happily with my carers with no problems whatsoever, until i leave. I'm writing this to get it off my chest, so that it won't play on my mind.
