Dear Adoption, I’ve Been Unwanted
I was unwanted
How do you think about that?
Knowing you weren’t wanted…
You were a GIRL or had special needs.
Knowing that they could have kept you, but they didn’t.
Knowing that your whole life
And sometimes getting bullied by it.
By being called names
That weirdo kid, that clutch, and so many other names
You wanna be strong
But you can’t
You break after many days.
You keep a smile on your face
But it’s fake.
You keep that smile on your face
So people won’t ask what’s up.
Your worst fear is to be abandoned
So trust is sorta hard.
You want to think the best of each person
But once they hurt you…
You can never forget.
You grow up older and want to find your birth parents
But it’s so much harder than it sounds
You want to, but your parents don’t.
They don’t want you to leave them
And you think
I could never do that
To them so you give up on your dreams.
But you always have to remember
Stay strong and find a friend who will
Always be there for you.
They’ll be there through the worst
And the best times in your life.
