To My Sister

To My Sister long poem

Photo by Swami Stream


We have not got a lot of memories that are fond
Do not share the norms of a family bond
Lacking shared memories seen as fond Of times that we were happy for once
Tied by blood, shared a home, so differently raised, You unnoticed and my misbehaviour praised
Discarded me as a wayward child
From how you’ve reacted with what I’ve compiled
Compiled a basis to resent you
You’ve never been there from all I’ve been through
You’ve had a way of always making me feel guilty
From adolescence to adulthood its now hit me
‘Cause all that I’ve done you couldn’t do
Never would you or could you
My previous affection has gone and retracted
A true callous nature is what you’ve contracted
You couldn’t even begin to empathise
The loss I felt when mum met her demise, You only focused on monetary gain
Not showing any sadness did you Lorraine?
I was in severe shock losing mum so quick
The wrong time to pressurise me that you’d pick, Live and let live so they do say
But your attitude has caused me such dismay
I can not forgive and forget so damn easy
No contact is something that will Please me
Even the last time we spoke Sparked more anger you’d provoke
Unable to recall is it two years or three That mum had been gone, disrespect really
The cold hard truth you wouldn’t be able to bear
So I will leave you to do what you do best, not to care.

I like writing poetry poems that rhyme Its an enjoyable way I spend my time I like doing DIY, art and craft Drinks with friends and having a laugh I love camping festivals holidays abroad Music gigs of those I adore I enjoy walking my dog everyday Don’t listen to what people say Hate being told how to behave and what to do Can empathise with what others go through Rebel against keeping fit and hate sport A true life learner all self taught I am spiritual not religious anymore Religion causes such an up roar Have belief in the afterlife and aliens too I like learning things of interest to do im considerably happy more often than not Always remember what ive previously forgot Take pride in my work strive to be the best I can be What you see is what you get just me being me.
