Teenage pregnancy in 1950,
Judgmental stones hurled by the self-righteous:
. . . sinner, slut, whore.
Deserted by the biological father,
Shunned by the high school elite.
Scarlet letter on her cheerleading jacket,
Pious stones bruised her future.
Acidic neighborhood tongues
Burnt the family reputation.
Forced adoption by her parents,
Legalistic stones violated her choices.
Twenty years later,
Searching for her daughter,
Amid sealed documents and bureaucracy.
Unforgiveness stones remembered.
Twenty more years pass,
A phone call from her flesh,
Mother and daughter reunited.
No more stones.
Melissa writes about the God and human connection and condition.
