We are alike…

In so much

As we share

The same genes

The same features

The same race

The same food predilections.

We are unalike…..

Where you are tall n shapely

I am short and stubby

Where you are confident

I am doubtful

Where you are successful

I am struggling

Where you are questioning

I am trusting

Where you are fearless

I am fearful

Where you go for the jugular

I falter always

My killer instinct

Does not exist

Today you are

The epitome

Of Beauty and fame

Yet you are

Always on your toes!

Always followed by

People ready to pull

You down the ladder!

I am still

Struggling

Making ends meet

Surrounded by

Loving friends

As I am their part and parcel

With shared laughter and tears

Shared dreams

Shattered and shattering!

Shared worries some over

Some to be dealt with

Yet I am happy

And at peace.

“Sibling relationships outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust.”
— Erica E. Goode
