why was i left behind
left out
family get together
at my daddy's house
my older sisters
my brother
daddy's brothers
and sisters
over sixty people
gathered at daddy's house
but no one bothered
to inform me
or my twin sister
left behind
left out
just like it has
always been
all of our lives
growing up
when company came
my twin sister and i
were told
"go to your room"
"go to the basement"
in other words
"children should be seen
and not heard"
we weren't even allowed
to be seen
but my older sisters
and my brother
were allowed to see them
we weren't
were they ashamed of us
ARE they ashamed of us
the same hurt
the same feelings
won't be left behind
won't be left out
my heart is breaking

It broke my heart to learn of this when we first spoke of it...and it breaks my heart again to read of it. {{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}

I will never understand why some parents do this to their children, it is so damnaging and ugly, I am so sorry Karla,

My heart breaks, too, for you and Karen. Dear Karla, I'm praying for you two. Your family are losing out by not including you both. I am so glad that God will wipe away all our tears one day. And...I pray His healing and comforting touch for you sweet ladies now!! Warm, soft hugs for you two--love, Cathy

This is tragic. You and Karen are in my prayers. Sending warm thoughts and gentle hugs.

As I told your sister.... there are people who love you and pray for you. I feel sad that this has happened, I know this feeling too well. (((hugs)))

How sad and painful, but thank God Karla,you will go to a place where God wipes away every tear, and there will be no more suffering and no one left out!

(((((KARLA))))) i feel the pain in this write; i feel a lot of the same feelings you do. I wonder what we may have done to deserve this; but you know that Jesus loves us, and if you put these memories at the foot of the Cross, He will most certainly help you. I don't let it bother me, and you shouldn't either. We are much better than that, and I am sorry if our family is acting like this. They are the ones who are in the wrong; WE are NOT in the wrong. All we can do is pray for them and hope that things change; it is up to THEM, NOT us. WE have done our part; the rest is UP TO THEM. If they don't want to accept us, then to HECK with them. They are the ones that are losing out, NOT us. Heartwrenching write! ((((((((HUGS))))))))) and MUCH love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :( >tears, tears, tears <

Wow do I know the feeling of rejection! Karla & Karen, just realize how much they missed by both of you not being there! Well written Karla, under tough circumstances.

Love to you and to Karen

Karla--please tell me this isn't true. Please tell me that this is merely just a write were you're displaying someone elses feelings. If this was about you, I'm so sorry and I hope things change. You deserve happiness my friend. Jim
