I wrote this poem back in April when I felt unvalidated by my Birthmothers family in particularly my cousin Emily Erickson aka Hanf. So here is the poem.

I’ve always felt invalidated

By family who is suppose to

be there for you.

Gotten cold shoulders from so called cousins.

Brandon isn’t my blood but Emily is.

Where does he come off telling me my actions forced him to treat me badly.

How is it possible for me…

Where does she come off in not validating me?

In not being part of my life but wanting me a part of her’s.


Unvalidated by birth mothers family

Not wanted by them.

Not in a healthy relation ship.

Not needed by them.
