A Poem

Feature Image

They say I am obsessing
carrying it to far
By wanting to know my
Admitting it left a scar
Move on with your life
They whispered in my ear
Leave it in the past
You can’t make up the
You have a family
Why bother with them
You belong to us
Not with her or him
I’m NOT looking to replace
Or switch families
Just needing some
To solve my life’s
Does no one understand
The struggle I must face
Solving a puzzle
With pieces misplaced
Some have been burnt
Their clues left in ash
While others are buried
Accessible only with cash
weighed down by laws
Set up to protect
While politicians play
With a noose around my
I know I am not alone
For thousands also seek
Adoptees shut off from
their past
No paddles to forge the
We will not stop our search
Submit or retreat
Until the puzzle of our lives
Is one day complete
