Sister

She was perfection.
Everything I strived to be, a mirror some people say
She only glances, snorts, and turns her head away.

Unique cold grace lined her frame
Beautiful in complexity
She quietly remained everything I could never be

And every step I did take
To earn just one infrequent smile
And now I know all she’ll ever see, is me as a child

This is honestly the story of my life. Never being as good as your sister, for me, it's being as pretty or as outgoing. It's an ongoing struggle that is always lost. I haven't found out the solution yet but maybe with sisters there isn't. You just have to find a way to live with them. Check out some of my work, too if you'd like. A lot of them are actually about my sister. You may find some similarities.

WARNING: I am going to ramble for too long. Okay, this is really good. I don't have a sister, but I get how it is to try so hard to be "perfect", whatever that is. I think I do that because once everbody finds out this "thing" about me (sorry I can't tell you what that is, I want too, but it's not safe here.)they will hate that imperfect thing, so I have to counteract it. Why am I spilling my guts to someone halfway across the country? Sorry about that. You probably think I'm weird.
