In My Twin's Shadow

I am evil while she is good,
She knows but keeps it in.	
I persuade the truth away,
Causing her to sin.

I don’t want to make her stray,
But she is ever certain,		
That I would never get her lost,
Because she is my twin.

Little does she know that I
Am a less than perfect soul.	
I do not want her to take my route
Falling short of all her goals.

Good twin, bad twin
Right twin, wrong twin
Does it matter anyway?		 
I think I know which one am I
Thanks to our mothers’ say. 

In a shadow all my life
I refuse to be stamped out.	
Always walking one step behind,
Don’t you care what I’m about?

    Reminds me of Joanne Woodward in "The Three Faces of Eve". Another good write.

    To be a twin , is 2 halves of a whole, just be yourself. Loved it. Seren
