Older Sister

Our sister

Puts up

with your shit

She should please you

in all ways

two kids

one man

Working

conservative

and cunning

But you still

cut her down

Her hair

Her weight

Her ways

You should know

She’s your only ally

Out of three

To a mother

you love no more

You should treat her better

than bitter children,

who know better

Father

Father,

I’ve always had this sense of self

That’s set your teeth on edge

perhaps, part is pride

But mostly, I think

it’s definite disdain

at my defiance

To be nothing, but who I am

unapologetically aware and uncaring

You used to try to dote on me

a dainty doll, you thought

but I was never docile on your lap

squirmed away, no rhyme or reason

childish willfullness

turned to adult aloofness

You care less and less for me

your wild daughter

Mouthy and mysterious

Maybe I remind you

of another rebellious rogue

you tossed like trash?
