Left, by MwsR

Adopted kids can feel a lot of pain, for a whole number of reasons.

This poem reflects the pain from a mother who choose to adopt out her own flesh and blood. Also this poems speaks from the one who was given away.

Having something that is so much a part of you as you are back.

To whisper things you need to believe, so you can go on to perform an unbearable act.

In desperation, you alone feel such great pain,

Giving away someone, and knowing it will increase your shame.

Tearing away at the edges that once sealed up your heart,

Just so you could actually live with a pretend of a different start,

Tucking in your feelings so no-one cam see,

What it did to you, what you gave up just to be anything but true

Knowing life hurts, but knowing that you are solely to blame,

In cognito, you survive, you bargain, you touch the flame,

Knowing you will burn, and they will too, because of your choice of separation,

They, lucky enough that there is adoption,

But forever they are un whole,

Looking forever for remnants of what is at the bottom of their hearts’ hole.

Forever,and such a shame it will most certainly be

That day, all things changed, when you gave away me.

  1. It’s good to hear that you have found your peace. I also sense you have developed further over the past year.


  2. It was such an issue , while growing up. Now I know who I was born as, does not define who I am. As a child, I never figured that out. My adult self, knows .
    Good question!😚


  3. May I ask a really personal question? Please feel free not to answer.
    How has being adopted affected your self identity?
