Left Out

Left out…
Unable to understand or see,
Simply knowing the pleasures available to one
Are not hers to receive.
Left out…
Left to wonder why;
Too young to fully understand,
She questions and she cries.
Though Mom explains as best she can,
The youngster doesn’t understand…
She only knows she’s been
Left out.

Left out…
Unable to understand or see,
Simply knowing a blessing extended to some
Is not extended to me.
Left out…
I stop to ask God, “Why?”
Not quite able to understand,
I tend to doubt and cry.
Though the Lord may explain,
At times my questions still remain,
And all I can see
Is that I’ve been
Left out.
