My White Page Day

She’s 17.


With no information about her birth family.

She wants to find them but can’t

Not until she’s 18.

She has always thought about who they are.


Next door?

Her best friend?

She wants to know.

But she doesn’t want to hurt those that love her.

Doesn’t she have a right to know?

Someday they find her

It’s lucky

It’s complicated

She thought it’s what she wanted

She has a sister; she’s always wanted one

Sister doesn’t want her

But it’s not my fault!

I didn’t ask for this!

She shuts them out

It’s too much

She’s always shut people out

When things get complicated

It’s easier that way

She doesn’t need anyone

Then she realizes that she does.
