"Be the change you wish to see in the world"-Mohatma Gandhi


You are the Little One
You came as nothing, as meat and bone
You came as an idea
No thoughts
No mind
Barely a being, yet such wondering eyes
You came into our world vulnerable
Crying
Screaming with life
Rasping for air
Craving for a mother
Longing for comfort, not knowing what comfort was
You, at your birth
Raised your pink little fingers
And grabbed one of mine
You became beautiful and serene
Your hair, like liquid chocolate
Your step, graceful and petite
Your voice, arrogant and unrefined
You came into our world and brought kindness
You gave us a meaning we had lost
You came to embody innocence
You came to embody the sister I had longed for
You, my angel
Gave fire to my loneliness
You are my Little One
You came out of darkness, bearing light
You took a breath of every soul around you
With it, you became a part of me
And forever will you be
My baby sister

This is a poem I wrote recently about my little sister. I kind of like her, if you noticed by the poem.
