What Else Am I To Expect - Poem by Ashley D. Mungroo

Rage welled up in you,
Not for me,
But for the person who gave you life.

Who raised you,
Nurtured you,
Who gave you security from all impurities.

All I did was try to help.
All I wanted to do was understand your side of the story.
I guess that's too much to ask for.
I'm your sister,
What more can I do other than look out for you.

Say what,
That same rage unleashed itself on me,
I'm still aching from what you said to me,

"I can't wait until you're dead"
