About the Poem

I wrote this poem while I was searching for my birth mother. It describes the uncertainties I was feeling.

I was adopted at age 2 weeks.

My Book

I have a book.
An interesting book.
A child growing up
From infant to toddler
Teenager to adult.
The pages are as old as I,
Worn from many readings.
Anxiously I turn the pages
To see what happens next.
Still I am drawn back,
Not knowing how the story starts,
To the beginning.
But in the first chapter
The pages are blank.
