30 Poems, 30 Days 2021: Abandoned (Day 8)

Image Credit: Canva.com

They found me crying by the wall abandoned

My mother would never return for me

She was long gone within Mexico

No return to sender information

They had no choice, I must stay

At a packed detention center

For a year I learned between those walls

More than what a toddler should

I had no choice until one day

I was adopted by Greek Americans

A young couple who recently gained citizenship

Who learned of my story and they knew

They could be my adopted parents

They would give me everything

So I could become their American Dream

A child they could love that would change the world

I would grow up with parents that struggled

Especially to teach me where I came from

As time passed, I learned on my own

My past to guide my future path

That would lead me to someone I would fall in love

Who had her own personal story of the border

Only time will tell if she’ll love me back
