The poem(s) are below...



So much was taken from me before my life began
By just one choice made by just one man
First you took my aunt, then my Mom and Dad
You took from me the life I never had
My whole life consumed… My mom NEVER stopped searching for you
No name, no face, no age, no race… 
Not one single clue.
As children do, I did what my mom did.
I started looking for you when I was just a kid
For 19 years my dad paid for what you did
While you had a family, got to raise your kids
Now that you have a name, your secret has been told
the heartache and brokenness no longer have a hold
Though your evil hand took what was to be
You no longer have the power to take anything from me.

By Melissa Lane-Morgan Branch Dedicated to my family
