Being called a mistake prompted a woman to re-exam her life when dealing with the emotions of that word coming back to haunt her.

Consistently Wrong 


It all started when I was conceived. 

My mother was accused of 

having an affair. 

Turns out it wasn't true. 

But a theme began. 


After Vietnam 

I become the “spoils of war.” 

What once was 

was never to be again. 

For reasons only he knows 

I was tossed aside 

to live a life without 

my other parent. 


A boy charmed me. 

Told me I was the princess 

I always wanted to be. 

He got what he bargained for. 

I was left to pick up the pieces. 

The word haunted me 

throughout my teenage years. 


Got married young. 

Was divorced five years later. 

Found out it was all a joke. 

He only wanted to get laid. 

Had children to raise. 

So I made one of many. 

Married again 

for all the wrong reasons. 

Lived a life full of them. 


The fates took a turn. 

Or so I thought. 

I was going to be treasured.
