April’s PAD — Day Twenty

April 20, 2014

prompt: write a family poem


Sisters In Secret

I had to look outside the family
to find the sister I always longed for
My own, as a teenager, was too selfish
only interested in boys — later on
too self-righteous to be of use

By the time I was thirteen
I was settling into my new sister
She was like me, quirky in the middle
so that as we bonded
we became an odd pair to many

Mother didn’t like my new sister
called her selfish — if she only knew —
and forbade me to see her
That’s when I decided
we would have to be sisters in secret

And so we were — as the years passed
sometimes together, many years apart
but always that close bond
I felt no where else — who says
you can’t pick your family?
