Adopting (Poem)

In the process of adopting a child,

It isn’t an easy decision,

It’s hard because of the background of the child,

I have to analyze and determine if this is the best decision,

Yes, I know I’ll be giving a home to a child.


Yet there are bad habits that I’ll have to break,

They were raised to believe it’s okay to do certain bad things,

There won’t be a break,

I’ll have to constantly monitor the child until they stop doing bad things,

It makes me wonder if it’s a habit I can break.


Still, I’m unable to have my own child,

Adopting is my only option,

Yet having my own child doesn’t mean a perfect child,

Thus, adopting might sometimes end up as a better option,

The adopted child might end up better than my own child.
