Normality isnít as important
As the appearance
Of normality
Give me the peace of the known
No surprises
I used to revel in the new
Seek out the adventuresome
Iíve grown old
Since yesterday
And the new no longer appeals
Give me peace
And Iím happy once more
Give me the everyday
And Iíll sleep away the next few years
Excitement be damned
Give me ennui

This has a different meaning for me than what it does for Felix and Regis. To me this poem is exactly what my mother did. She embraced the everyday, the things that she knew and was comfortable with, and that is why she refused to accept me as her daughter, because it was a new thing in her life, and she refused to have anything to do with the new. She held onto her past with a death like grip. But I will always ask why could'nt she accept me for me, why did she want me to be someone I could never be? I guess now I will never know for sure.

This poem brought back a flood of torment and fear, as I remembered the dark days.

But other than that sis, you wrote this very good, and with emotion and strength. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie
