Learn to obey before you command.


Don't compare us
She might be smart
But even though I struggle with minus and plus
I too have a heart

You tell them how brilliant she is
You tell me to go sit down and wait
Don't compare us, please
It hurts and hurt soon will turn to hate

All you see is her
How happy she is, carefree
Mom, why can't we be the way we were
When you would also acknowledge me

It hurts to know
That you love her more
My spirit sinks, so low
Why can I have the love I had before

After she was born
I was just...there
It left me broken and torn
To know that all I have now is my teddy bear

Never compare two people. You might build the one up, but also break the other one down.
