Big sis

Never misses a chance to remind you that you are the younger one
And that there are things you are yet to see in this life.
We suspect she is secretly proud of the thankless job
Of co-raising her younger siblings.
She sees stuff you can’t
She worries about things you have little inkling of
She cares much deeper than she lets on.
She is permanently in middle management,
Navigating the treacherous space between
The happy go lucky younger siblings
And our beloved parents.
She is keenly aware of family dynamics
And carries our name with grace.
She is a matriarch in her own right
A force
A leader
A lioness
Watching out for the pride.
