Baby given up with no name;
Until someone took her in- shelter from the storm;
Once nameless, now framed with a name;
Adopted by a family, last name changed;
Growing up, a feeling she never could ignore;
Secrets kept, she never once implore;
Memories lost she couldn’t restore;
Bound lost, lonely, abandoned, hopeless, dazed, and confused;
A house that felt like no home;
A family disconnected;
Betrayed of lies;
But one remained hidden deep inside;
Within her heart, a longing she couldn’t sway;
A face once without a name, named.
Had a home.
Had a family.
Had a life beyond some.
Yet, deep within,
A child once nameless,
Could never separate her from reality;
Deep within, her heart bound by
Lost, lonely, abandoned, hopeless, dazed, and confused.
