Hearing through such young ears

That nobody wanted me

Nobody loved me

I was unwanted.

Then hearing as a young adult

How lucky I was

How grateful I should be

How still nobody would want me

How nobody would love me.

Then as an adult

Hearing how ungrateful I am

For people that gave up everything

For a child they didn’t even want.


All the things I’ve heard

Felt in my heart must have been true

When you said them

The second they came out of your mouth

They were a lie.
