Adoption and Marriage (Poem)

Adoption has always been my dream,

To give a home to a child who didn’t have a home,

To give love to a child who needs it was my dream,

I wished to create a loving home,

Yes, that is still my dream.


I also dreamed of marriage,

I dreamed of a man who’ll love me,

Yes, I got my marriage,

Yes, he loves me,

Yet I now have to choose between a child and marriage.


What do you do when the one you love doesn’t want a child?

What do you give up?

Do you give up on the man or the child?

Deep down I know what I’ll give up,

It isn’t the child.


That’s why I’m now here crying,

Crying because of my marriage,

If I chose marriage I wouldn’t be crying,

Yet I guess there’s no such thing as a perfect marriage,

I guess some of us are left crying.
