Being last born

Rob is my youngest son

being the youngest is not always fun!

Having a brother and sister that much taller

was often tough and not much order

would prevail

to no avail!

when out the room my mum was busy

my bro and sis made my life quite dizzy!

Putting buckets on my head

Making me do things like jump on the bed!

hiding things and making me cross

i really was often at a loss

as what to do

but when the day was through

my mum would read a story to me

when off to bed after tea

See bro and sis were quite naughty

and often got quite haughty

they said that little bro is spoilt you see

as baby of the family

one two three

that’s me!

the third and last of the bunch

so you see the hunch

i got the most of my mums spoiling

whilst my sis and bro were often boiling!

saying he gets all the attention far to much

its all to much and such and such!

But now their grown

all these three

and off they went so independently!

Studying hard with great degrees

and working now if not to please

each other

now theres no bother

all friends they are

oft not seen for ages

as different lives and different pages

have they written since they were small

and no one is spoilt no not at all!

so when they meet they all are clearly

friends and love each other most dearly!

so do you have a sibling that you think was treated better than you?

And if so, what annoying things did they do?

to make you cross and to be felt

that your mum and dad had not dealt

to you a fair treating

and it was too defeating

to try and make your sibling share

everything and make it fair!

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
