Miscalculated, loved, and misconceived, In angered, sick, remorseful mornings grown Resentful, filled with shamecast eyes that grieved, Disowned, she faced the birthing pangs alone. Defenceless angel child, with rooting trust Dissolved a callous world in love-locked gaze, Resolved to defend, though spirit crushed She fled her homeless flat down fret-filled days. With income gone, and hope bereft, she wept. The hungered, haunted whimper never stopped. For social help is destitution crept; The smug faced answer came – Adopt, Adopt. For twenty years in taunted silence lived Unknown, a youth still thought he was not loved.
