I will never be better than my older brother
I will always want my Dad to be proud
I will always be ashamed that I can’t help my Mother
In the myriad worthy ways she would wish.
I will never have my sister as close as she should be.
I should live with a more open heart.
I should work harder and feel deeper.
But I don’t and I am still myself
Which is refreshing.
More than, say, leading you to a satisfying conclusion of this blog post.
