“Switched at Birth”

To give birth to a child

that would never know you

never understand you

-either one of you-

because her world ….

was a place of

“…truth …justice …and ideals…”

She couldn’t hear a thing you said

she couldn’t see

“you all” were the problem and always have been

this is the coldest form of disrespect I know.

And it’s in my very bones.

And I’m now certain

that this is why

my life is cursed…..

God gave “you all” the wrong child.
