Why?


sister why are you so hateful towards me?
do you have any idea how your making me so unhappy?
you call me ugly, skinny, stupid worthless, that everyone just wishes I'd just go
little sister I love you but I don't understand why you hate me so
I'm sorry for what I did to you so long ago
please little sister forgive me and let the past go
I was young, stupid and so very messed up in my way of thinking
your hate filled words are causing my ship to start sinking
my heart hurts every time I hear the words you say to me
and I almost drown in the new wave of misery
wish you could see
this pain you cause me
that for once you could feel the way you make me feel
why can't we stop fighting and start being real?
your my little sister I love you
but now I think you might not love me too

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
