Sister, these are my promises to you
I promise that when they call you small
I will take you to the top of a mountain
So you can see that in fact
We all are
I promise that when you whine that it’s cold
I will take you to the north pole
To remind you
It could always be colder
I promise that I will draw clouds
On the backs of your hands
So that your head will always be above them
And your feet always below...

Clouds in the sky,
Wind’s howling around me
I’m watching a storm unfold
My heart’s pounding,
as I’m standing outside
Should I run?
I stay there
In the middle of the storm
I’m like glass, shattering at every hit.
I have to make a choice.
I turn around and there’s a bright light–
giving me warmth.
Hugging me, it whispers
I give in
I am healing,
The moon shines bright
In the dark of the night.
But when it fades away in the morning
The sky seems pretty boring.
Art is amazing don’t you think?
You can make beautiful pictures
Out of simple things like paint or ink.
And frame it on a wall or refrigerator.
In the daytime the sun is up in the sky
In the night it’s as if the sun exploded into a million pieces.
I enter a public place and map all the exits out
There is constantly the thought that I might need an escape route
I heard a firework the other day and was sure it was a bomb
I can’t communicate the fear that I felt through a poem or a song
This is the way that we have all gotten used to living
So my apologies, if your jokes regarding violence don’t leave me feeling very forgiving
Our world, it has made me grow weary
What’s the point in...

Little angel, little angel,
You will become my perfect angel, you will be pretty, cute,
chunky, perfect, and I will love you with all my heart and
you will be the most spoiled sister I ever had and I will
spend time with you, take you to the park, feed you, sleep
with you, bathe you, take care of you when you are sick,
love you, dress you, have a day off of school so I can be
with you all day, and help you, so love you, love you, love
her eyes shine like diamonds
her nose kind and perked up
smooth skin on her face
as she says ‘’Good Morning!’’
helpful, kind, caring
teacher of all things
loud and carefree
as she packs her bags.
her voice leaves a melancholic ring in your ear
as she closes the door.
