Amazing Adoption

farmYou’re amazing they say
but what they don’t hear
is the screaming and shouting born out of fear.

You’re amazing they say
but what they don’t feel
is the pain and trauma they gradually reveal.

You’re amazing they say
but what they don’t see
is the anger and resentment that is directed at me.

You’re amazing they say
but what they don’t know
is we leave a trail of destruction wherever we go.

We’re not amazing
we’re just doing our best
to parent a child that has lived in far too many nests.

An amazing child
that is desperate to be
loved and cherished just like you and me.

An amazing child
that doesn’t know how
to let you do this, not ever? Not now!
