    A child once told me that the DNA thru our veins didn't mean s*it
    ...and afterwards I silently went into a bi*ch fit
    This stemmed from a graduation I forgot to mention
    So now that she "snapped", she has my undivided attention
    I saw this child for what she was that day
    Jealous, clueless and one a^& whoopin away
    The things that remarked upon cut me so deep
    My heart turned cold to her and the tears did seep
    She is the baby and I am the prodgial daughter
    from a former romance and we share the same father
    But we are not the same, she comes from more than I
    I live with my mom, and money is hard to come by
    She lives in a huge house, I see drive bys
    She wants for nothin, and she believes all these lies
    There are benefits from her family that I do not reap
    She has sorely mistaken me from a beggar on the street
    Yes, I come around rarely but there are things she doesn't know
    About the years of back child support her father owes
    About how I slaved thru college & only had my mother's aid
    I made it thru by fGod grace and I NEVER had it made
    She doesn't understand that I've dealt with so mch rejection
    I could give a [email protected] about her familys affection
    She'll never know how I struggled and how I triumph in my success
    I was so low @ times but now I feel like I've truely been blessed
    She only sees my vacancy, and how I was never there
    She doesn't bother to ask me why and it seems like she doesn't care
    How dare this child judge me? Based on things unseen?
    How parts of my life have been a nightmare, and hers always a dream
    I may try to be a bigger person but I just don't have that strength
    Im tired of going that extra mile, I need HER to close that length
    The Libra in me can't even hug her no more, I got a deep seeded grudge
    This lil infant stands there and puts me down, drags my name in the mud
    Im glad I finally saw her for what she was, stuck in her own world
    And I see now.... that my sister is truly one ...lost ...little ....girl

    This was a touching read. I understand sibling conflict.

    You expressed this so well, the pain, the anger, the indignation....as well as telling how you "made it over" in spite of the obstacles.

    Bravo to your writing skills and to you! :toast:




    I pray that she not remain "lost" and as she gets older and wiser that she look for you.....Hopefully, like magnets, you two "opposites" will attract each other.
