Little sister

I remember
You with your blonde curls
And blue eyes
Staring up at me
Wishing I would guide
And teach you
Everything I knew
I remember
Being too busy
To be bothered with a little sister
Until you were no longer there
And no longer cared
What I was up to
And I watched you forge
A path on your own
Strong and true
And then all I wanted
Was to learn from you. 


Like metal in an F-5
Wrapped around what I used to be
And what the elements of life
Have molded me into
Different than I began
But each day
I am stronger

It isn’t the negativity which you project
It’s the careless way you toss it about
Towards people’s heads
With no regards
That you may have just
Broke their heart
That makes me wonder
Who you have become
It makes my heart hollow
And my eyes moist
As my ears ring
With others views of you
And I rush to defend
Unsure why
When you no longer want
Me by your side.

You sit
Stuck in a rut
Like a rat in a cage
Too lazy to jump out of the wheel to nowhere
You spin
Because at least then
the world revolves solely around you
And you don't have to pretend
That you care about anyone else
Or their feelings
Or a conversation that doesn't
Directly affect you
God forbid there be a valid world
Outside your cage of denial.
