My share of wealth

An enormous enthusiasm
Lead to a sudden encounter
Venue - the elegant drawing room
Speakers - three eloquent siblings
Time - uncertain
Audience, I, a foster daughter.
" Biological  clock" alarmed the 
Auspicious time,
Attention please!
Rising the eldest with his pious tone  
" Wealth should be equally shared among..........."
Abruptly truncating,
The youngest erected
with his adorable smile,
"Hey, custom is family home belongs to the youngest"
Overriding sister with 
Uniform winning mood,
"Those precious to me 'cos she is dying at mine"
Attention please!
All six eyes shot to me at last.
With a synchronized shrill
"Then your share , buddy?"
"Already got what I've desired " muttered I.
Within milliseconds
I was trespassed.
Pushing hither and thither,
I found myself.
" You bastard, what you've got from our mom before us?"
Echoed .
whispered I,
" Patience , courage and wisdom only."
