look again


look into my eyes 
you will see blue 
look into my heart 
you will find the same
yet my smirk reveals nothing
Pidgeon toed sister
new baby brother
proudest new mother 
ambitious new father
acknowledge my height
you will see I am short
acknowledge my temper
you will see the same
Doe eyed sister
silly kid brother
lonesome mother
exasperated father
examine my teeth 
you will see they are white
examine my lies
you will see the same
misguided sister
confused brother
drunken old mother
heartbroken father
look at my skin
you will see the ridges
look at my life 
you will see the same
If I am the sister
who is my brother
where is my mother
what happened to my father
