   this is a poem to my sister Tina

whom I've hurt a thousand times.

Whose tough facade

has been crushed by my unwillingness to be a friend



I have scarred through weakness and

immaturity your frail confidence forever

because whenever I needed to yell, scream, or punch,

you were always there to be hurt, and

I thought you knew how wonderful you are

and how proud I am of you,

but now I see that I was so very unclear,

that my "love" was so confusing.



I apologize, Tina, my sweet, caring sister.

You've always been there for me.

I love you.
