Dedicated to my sister.

 

I have seen you sad,

Even crying you are beautiful.

Happy,

Face beaming, eyes sparkling.

Mad

Enough to spit.

Furious,

Steam pouring from your ears.

Depressed,

A blue aura clinging to your skin.

Resilient,

Bold and proud and bulletproof.

Excited, Barely able to contain your joy.

Bored,

About to fall asleep.

Jealous,

Near green with envy.

Arrogant,

Thinking yourself invincible and the best.

Stubborn,

Never backing down.

Tired,

Exhaustion evident in your every move.

Humble,

Blushing, talking yourself down.

Embarrassed,

You get prickly like an uncomfortable porcupine.

Loving,

Like a declawed kitten.

Focused,

Barely noticing anything else around you.

Mean,

With your friends, unaware.

Hurt,

Lashing out like a Bengal tiger.

Alone,

By preference, a rogue wolf.

Ebullient,

A social butterfly.

Shy,

Rarely, but truly.

Unsure,

Unable to concede.

Competitive,

Dangerously so.

Afraid,

Though you’d never admit it.

Playful,

Mischievously devious.

Happy,

Face beaming, eyes sparkling.

I have seen you sad,

Even crying you are

Beautiful.
