Dear Adoption, I’m Hurting
You took me away to make me better,
you said it’s the only way,
but I never recovered who I am,
it’s like this, still today.
I am supposed to thank you for this,
I’m supposed to be grateful,
my mum I lost and do so miss,
adoption, you are sinful.
I’ll never forget and not forgive,
what you did to me,
I am, with help, beginning to live,
but this, at fifty three.
