Great poem sis...you hit the nail right on the head! Dad is always talking about connie, and "Why can't you be like her?" etc. why can't we be daughters instead of slaves??? I wish he could see what he is doing is wrong.. wishful thinking huh? *sigh*
p.s. i liked the poem....
"For every beauty, there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth, there is an ear somewhere to here it For every love, there is a heart somewhere to receive it".--Ivan Panin
I really like the poem, though I don't have a suggestion for the title, though I completely identify with it!
"The worst of what people do to one another is deceive. Because when you love someone you control their version of reality. If you lie to them that's like making them autistic so that what they believe is reality is in fact, not their true situation at all.
Great poem chic.....I have an older sister as well and know exactly how you feel. It's hard trying to live up to their expectations and when you get tired of it and try living up to your own expectations they can't accept you for who you've become. Life's defianatly a beach(sorry about that) and there is nothing you can do about it.

Chic, you poor baby! Oh you broke my heart! I'm so sorry your parents' are too blind to see you for who you are, a very sweet girl. I have two step daughter's and they are the light's of my life right along with my son. I hope you know it's not your fault, and it won't last forever, you'll be gone before you know it. -SEA
Ahhhh, family problems, I know thee well. In my case, I have to live in my sisters shadow, with no hopes of ever filling it, no matter how much better than her I ever do. How about "Dear Mother and Father" as the title?
I am not a poet, I am merely one who speaks in emotion
To name this poem is certainly not easy Well done how you presented your feelings Perhaps may I suggest "Love wanted" "Take me as I am" "What must I do" There are so many that come to mind I liked the poem
The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
Thank you. I really understand this poem. It isn't easy, especially when you really love them and you really love your sister. How can you tell them when you don't want to hurt them? It's hard. Thank you.
Interesting! I know not what you speak of in this poem but, I know someone you should talk to about this. LoveBug is in if not the same situation something simmilar to it. she wrote about it and posted a poem about 3 weeks ago. Ask her about it. I know she loves to talk!

sooner or later, they would realize that you're far greater than your sister. that there's more to you than what they always thought. they just have to give you time and let you show what you've got. despite of that compares you got, i'm very sure that your parents are proud of you. cares for you. loves you. perhaps, you didn't see it because your heart is filled with so much hatred. is hatred the right term to use?
