“My Sister”

My Sister

 

One year, 11 Months, and 2 days
Separate our lives
With cherry hair
And bright emerald eyes
A perfect advocate for our Irish Catholic genes
Contrasting my brown hair
And likewise brown eyes
Her striking features accentuate
The frankness of my own
She is shorter than I
With the familial full figure
Jealous of her admittance
And acceptance
Of herself and others

Yet, she is the only one
As I to her

Bound not by affection, but by blood
And hatred with love only formed
Through a bond reserved for sisters
We could not be more different
Yet I find myself
Compared to her

Compassionate beyond necessity
Masked by her enviable
Assertiveness
Accepting of what is
Seen by her naked eyes
Untold desirable characteristics
Pride is the inevitable culprit

Yet, she is the only one
As I to her
