We were both alike
Like flowers of the same tree
Nourished by the same ground
Watered by the same clouds
But I was on the side of the moon
You were on the side of the sun
When you saw the sunrise
Sun always being with you
I only saw the sunset
Sun going away from me
Youthful and young
The bees are buzzing
Not knowing my story
Not knowing me
Could I not be as good as you
As beautiful as you
Why, you are fed by the same tree
Only the tree knows
What it knows
It wont share

Whether I be by the moon and he be beside sun, let the genetic composition keeps contacting and we keep being in unity, that is what matters.

Thanks for your views on the poem- Peggy, Chatra, Lorna, Shreya and Hertha.
The poem is about how outside circumstances (the sun) can lead to very different lives for different siblings and that although one might look like they achieved a lot the other might have gone through tougher circumstances.
Thanks for sharing your views :)

This poem is beautifully picturised the true meaning of the siblings.
Lovely poem Ms. Angela :)
Lorna Lamon on July 07, 2020:
This is a thoughtful poem and I feel even though we may be different from our siblings, perhaps we should embrace that difference and walk our own path.

It is amazing how different siblings can be from one another. Your poem is a rather sad one.
