Champion Sibling

I’m stuck with you
No matter what I do, what I achieve I’m Forever imprisoned in your shadow
The favourite child to our parents
The champion sibling to me

All the time
Our dear parents say to me
Look at what she does, be more like her
Then you’ll never fail in life
She’s always been the perfect child: never in trouble, eats her vegetables and gets better grades
Works harder than you
She’s just better than you in every way possible…

What did I do to deserve this?
Did I ask to be born before her, after her or even at all
These comparisons to you have been the reasoning behind the scars on my wrists
This pressure to become as good as you
Has made me not know what to d

Nobody even notices me
Nobody even cares about me,
Visitors flock to our house to celebrate your achievements
Yet mine only warrant a pat on the back and a well done if I’m lucky

What people need to realise is I’m an individual
Not a dysfunctional clone of the best daughter to ever walk this earth
That’s the reason why I’m not like her
That’s the reason why I look sad
It’s because you say she’s so good to imply that I’m bad.

Hey people I hope you enjoyed the Champion Sibling because it’s a true story and an issue that affects a lot of people including me. To be honest it was a bit of a freestyle as I wrote it as i went along so tell me if you liked it. As always feel free to like,comment,follow and spread the love.

Until next time,
The Lonely Lion
