Dear Brother - Poem by Amber Jones

</>Dear Brother,
I wonder if you realize
how perfect you are in their eyes.
They look at you and see a star,
with hopes your 'smarts' will take you far.
You need not worry about me.
You're the only one that they see.
I wish I could take your place,
but I doubt they wanna see my face.
I have done everything to be like you
in hopes that they will love me, too,
but you're the only one they want.
I realize now I'm just a taunt;
a creature who just holds them back.
Their lives my being just attacks.
I just want you to know how lucky you are,
because you're Mommy and Daddy's favorite star.
