|Many things unknown to us happen in the first three years of life that we have no conscious way of processing or altering later in life. Yet, it is always surprising to me how often poetry reaches back almost to the fringe of those untouchable years. Nice piece, Rebecca. It gives us all something of special value.|

|Does she love you Becca? With love everything is possible. Your writing shows what a beautiful person you are and I'm sure the woman who brought you into this world sees this too. Acceptance is sometimes the hardest pill to swallow...especially in a family. Be who you are...stay positive, and her 'acceptance' will surely follow.

|She might be doing it the wrong way, but I suspect your mother is trying to make your world brighter. Wonderful expression of your feelings. Perhaps let her read this?|

I like this one only because in some way, I can relate to this. I'm not disabled but on many occasions I had made to feel like one indeed.
Parents can mold their own perfect images of their children, but sometimes they had forgotten to give room for their own children's needs and the feelings of their own children when they fail to live up to THEIR SELFISH PERFECT IMAGES!
Be well, and just live and be happy! Do the things you can do...like writing poetry, publish a book!

|i am so sorry you are going through this. i went through the same thing with my two older sisters, the brainiacs (especially the second oldest one); the one could (and still can't) do no wrong; and karla and i were treated shabbily because we were both born handicapped. we were disappointments to our parents, and we still feel this way today. then people wonder why karla or i are oftentimes so depressed. DUH! excellent write about an all too common occurrance in families. we were dysfunctional, too. still are. (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in burleson, karen lynn. :( >tears <|
