You were doomed from the start
The moment of conception
A bastard child
A product of an illicit affair
Your mother, a married man
His whereabouts unknown.
A father you never knew
You were given a name and told that he died
How convenient
You were doomed to be different all of your life
Treated as such from all of your family
You took that role and lived it
Your fate you supposed
A man without origin
Without true roots
Your were doomed to be labeled
No one would ever really trust you
Born unto an angry mother
Whose messed up her life
Somehow she blamed you
Everyone blamed you
The chip on your shoulder grew heavier each year
Relationships failed
The women in your life misled you
All like your mother
You were doomed
To be the better person
Prove them all wrong
Better your life, like you’ve done,
and be one hell of a man.
You were doomed, you know
To meet me
To be loved unconditionally
Wanted, needed and appreciated for who you are
Never to look back on what was, but on what will be
And without a doubt …
Spend the rest of your life with me

Fantastic write, deeply insightful, with a wonderfully rewarding ending (or should I say "beginning")!!
Reviewed by Jerry Andrews
Jaqueline, this is a very upbeat statement of hope and the ability of one to come back and live the life they create. It can be done, as you obviously know. When it isn't done, serial killers can be created, too. Please read my Long Gone Love, Willow, Old Souls and Journey. Also my story, very short- The One That Got Away. Give me some feedback, please. You will enjoy them, I promise you. Thanks- Jerry

" were doomed, you know
to meet me
to be loved unconditionally
wanted, needed and appreciated for who you are
never to look back on what was, but on what will be
and without a doubt...

(((HUGS))) and love,

karla. :)

*although i'm not a bastard child, i've felt those feelings myself...doomed to be a failure, having to prove myself again and again to a family that doesn't appreciate me for who i am--this touched my soul, and will be added to my library to read again and again*

Reflection by Donna Lagone

Why did Rosie on her death bed asked me to promise to always keep her silver mirror in the family. What silver mirror and why?..
