    Cry in my sleep…
    For I don’t know which
    I came…
    Livin with lies…
    Helping family cover it up…
    They say I look like him
    I even have his temper..
    My wavy hair came from him..
    My eyes are darker…
    But I am an angel..
    Gods gift to my mother..
    And she thanks my sister…

    I listen more as they talk..
    And its all about me…
    My sister not my sister..
    My mother not my mother…
    For they built this lie….

    And I listen more….
    For my sister talks with love..
    Askin how is she doing?
    Whats her grades like?
    So did she win the game?
    Wish I could be there to see…
    The day I walk down that long hall…
    For them to call my name…
    I never knew life would be like this…

    For my sister not my sister
    And my mother not my mother…
    Lies within this family…
    I cry tears...
    in the shadow of my life...
    its been lies....

    My sister not my sister
    My mother not my mother.....

    Dear Sister
    you are you
    a caring soul
    as i read the flow compose
    i am feeling you
    on this confusion
    you are a gift
    a special angels
    that have indeed
    touched so many.
    it is a question you want to know
    in time perhaps
    the pattern will unfold
    know right now
    that you are loved
    and you are indeed
    a special gift from above.
    Peace

    You are you

    You are who you are. That doesn't change a thing. Mzblkangel. Doing her thing. Finding out the truth can be hard. The truth can hurt. Don't let that change your worth. Never to know is worse than the fact. Lies are told to cover the truth. That never should be done. Finding the lie is about you is a very hard one. Do you love, them. Thats all that matter. Continue to ask questions. Answers matter. Build from that and continue to be the light that you are. You are so caring. Work it out. Much love.

    The Truth Shall Set You Free...

    As the saying goes...The truth shall set you
    free...And freedom is responsiblity, once you
    have the truth...what are you going to do
    with it!

    Blessings on Ya House!

    awww baby, my heart really goes out to you on this one. :grouphug: I am glad you found the peace of mind, because you are a queen. this has nothing to do with you - only their need for deceit. much love.
