The poem is below.


never had a brother
never had a sister
born to great parents
loved my grandparents
have a great life
a great wife
why do I feel left out
can’t miss what you don’t have
some days I get angry with this
jealousy does not become me
hostage to an involuntary emotion
I’m both protective and human
now I recognize my faults
that’s me all sorted
