GOING both WAYS

By: Jonathan Hinternish

Born of one family.

Given to another.

Who is my mother?

Who is my father?

Why was I not wanted before?

Why now?

Is there more?

My life went smoothly in every way.

Every moment of every day.

But behind the scenes, I did not know.

The legal fights, and many woes.

My family on one side.

One on another.

Fighting over me, and I’m in the middle.

What’s going on?

What do I do?

Will my life change?

Will it stay the same?

I’m only eight years old!

O’!

What a shame!

Let me live!

Let me be me!

I’m just a kid!

Let me be!

I’m happy where I am!

Why go to court?

Stop fighting over me!

Just let me be!
