for my sister
Since we were young I always adored you. You were the best athlete and the most talented artist. You were the coolest kid I knew. I wanted to be just like you. We had our fights and our childhood was a bumpy road. Even if you said you hated me the next day I would wake up and love you just as much as I did the day before. I know that we went through a lot, and it's not your fault. You were my shield, taking hit after hit just to save me from what was said or done and I didn't even know. I use to think you were just angry at me because I was annoying but I didn't think much of it. Now I know. You were frustrated because of our situation, you couldn't take it out on her so I was the next person to turn to. I forgive you, we didn't ask for this, you didn't deserve this. When you graduated we grew far apart. we could be in the same room and I felt like I was sitting in a room with a complete stranger. My mind was poisoned, clouded, manipulated. I believed the lies that had festered in the walls of both of our heads. They got to me, it was like I almost wasn't being who I really am. I felt started getting more comfortable around you when I started to question the teachings that were pounded into my head. It was like I was swimming back up to the top of a deep ocean of realization. For so long I had been sinking deep into the depths but right when I when I started questioning I started to slowly float up to the top. We started getting closer when dad moved. I felt like things were always being said behind my back though. I felt like I was left out of something but I couldn't put my finger on it.
