A Poem For My Baby Sister

The moment you were born is like a rain on a desert
It was unexpected, but undeniably, we felt great
But a part of me wished you weren’t here at all
It’s not that I don’t love you (because I do), it’s just that i’m so scared you would fall.

You see, this world is terrible
One day you’ll feel happy, and then the next day would feel like you just lost your soul.
But believe me when I say that humanity is the fearsome of all
And what terrifies me is that you would understand why before long.

Baby, let me tell you a short story
I won’t say “once (upon a time)” because it happens “all the time”, unfortunately.
A girl was fooled, she was brokenhearted
And don’t worry, that’s how it really goes here on Earth

In this world, people would pretend to be kind
They would offer you everything, and then one day, it will turn the other way around
Little did you know that the things they gave weren’t for free
Protect your heart, because that’s what they’re after for, baby.

For a child like you, yes, flowers are so beautiful
But have you seen them dry up as if they’re losing their soul?
I refuse to admit but the truth is that i’m on the same pot with them
We are all flowers soon to be decayed.

Baby, trust me when I say that not all flowers are meant to bloom.
Because your sister’s here, a withered one, unable to grow;
Once a beautiful flower like you are right now as you’ve just been born,
Now I am a rose, bleeding and pained by my own thorns.
