Brother and Sister

by a young man, age 15

We fought
We bickered

I hated her
She hated me

Blinded by our problems…

Mom and Dad split up
There’s no food in the fridge
We’re getting evicted
Our brother just got locked up

Then it hit us…

She’s my blood
I’m her blood

That’s my sister
I’m her brother

We’ve only got each other
