You're the oldest, watch what you say,
Set good examples,
They just want to be like you.
But how?
I may be the oldest of your children but I feel like the youngest.
How do they want to be like me
When I don't even know who me is?
They just do.
So be a big good sister,
sweet and kind,
And by the way
You'll figure out what traits make you.

Oh I can understand this! I'm the oldest and sometimes it feels like a job I can't handle. It's like, how am I supposed to lead when I'm still learning the steps myself? Great poem~
