"Dance like no one's watching.Sing like no one's listening.Love like you've never been hurt. Live like its heaven on earth." -Mark Twain

We were supposed to be the best of friends
This can't be how the story ends
You’re my darkest foe
When I'm happy you put me down low
I can't do anything right
Every conversation is a fight
We scream and shout but don't hear
How we got this way isn't clear
Am I too weak and you too strong?
Am I never right, and you never wrong?
We aren't the same
Though we share a last name
You are pretty, popular, a jewel.
I am ugly, shy and a fool
You’re outspoken, saying what you feel
I can't let you in, you'll do damage for real
I've got walls to keep the world out and away
You’re angry I won't show you how much I fray
To you I'm an embarrassment, a humiliation
Every word you say to me is a laceration
I try to shut up and be nice
But your shoulder must be covered in ice
Because I'll never make you proud
I'm too quiet, you’re too loud
I hate this war between you and me
I wish of this hate we could be free
You’re my little sister, and it’s plain
You'd rather I got lost in the rain.
