Birth!

Had taken so long to pluck up courage

at the airport time to ponder the past

born forty-two years on this very day

now alone waiting to board a plane

did not tell the parents or try to explain

her hidden feelings of hurt and pain!

 

Knew she was abandoned from birth

brought up in an orphanage until ten

then foster homes were she suffered

abused pleas for help were ignored

attempted suicide a cry for support

in a vicious cycle had been caught!

 

Eventually she found loving parents

when seventeen and was adopted

guiding a young woman to sanity

married but divorced had one child

now grown up and turned out fine

who had brought back the sunshine!

 

This journey had to be done all alone

to meet the woman who gave her life

yet forsaken the child soon after birth

what truths would be unearthed!

 

The countdown to her heritage had begun!
