My Brother (Whether he Likes it or Not)

by chicanapoeticscholar

So I lent my brother my phone and as he is giving it back I say “Thanks brother!” As the word brother slips the cracks I call lips he quickly not to call him that. So naturally I ask what should I call him. He tells me to use his name. Ironically this hurts me. Today he also managed to ignore me. He only talks to me when he needs something from me. I wish it did not bother me but it does. I wonder when he will value me as I do him. I really can not tell my mom since she really does not understand. I wonder what must happen to me for him to value me as a sister. Seeing so many lose siblings this weekend just makes me ponder.
