I wrote this poem because my sisters, once again, hurt me. I'm a little more sensitive then they, but they don't realize what they say hurts me. I think they should be a little more kind and appreciate their baby sister. Sometimes a kid feels that they need to be perfect in order to live up to their siblings expectations.

Sisters
Why is it that sisters tease?
Can you tell me please?
They always make me cry
with one mean lie.
Why is it me,
They don't like to see?
All I did was love you!
Do you have no respect?
Or is it 'cause you have
to be perfect?

    I liked the poem you wrote it reminds me of my twin sister. She say's some words she dont remember and that hurts me and it would take her about 5minutes to say she's sorry about what she'll say that hurts me. but yea that is a really nice poem you wrote.

    It's a true thing what this poem is about. Because that's exactly what my sister did 2 me when I was young. But now I'm older, my sister and I both think about back in the days when she use to tell the most littlest lie to my mother and i get yelled at. i love this poem
