A Complicated Relationship

July 19, 2008
By Natalie Dalton, Myrtle Beach, SC

One minute,
Slamming doors, screaming voices,
Leave me alone, get out of my room.


Next minute,
Giggles and laughs, whispers in the dark,
Come here I need to tell you something,
secrets shared.



One minute,
No time, I'm busy, go away.


Next minute,
What can I do? Let me fix your hair.
How can I help? Let me give you a hug.



One minute,
I wish I were an only child!


Next minute,
Come play with me. I miss you!



One minute,
Enemies, fighting for attention.


Next minute,
Friends, standing together against the world.


Always Sisters.
