I wrote this for my oldest daughter, I was the oldest of three and she is now the oldest of three...It can really be a pain...and this was my way of letting her know that i understand how being oldest can suck.


THE OLDEST OF THREE



The Oldest OF Three

Sometimes being the oldest
Has more con’s than pro’s
It isn’t always easy
Ask anyone who knows.
When other kids are younger
They will look up to you
They look when you don't know it
Watching everything you do.
It isn’t always fun
Being the leader of the pack
But you will see someday
When you’re older, looking back.
You got to do things first
like wear make-up, and date
Your clothes were always newer
No “Hand-me-downs-too-late”
Every single detail recorded
There in your Baby Book
The younger babies had one too.
It never got a second look.
You were your Mom’s first true love
The first to make her feel complete
You were first to fill her heart with joy
When she heard your little heart beat.
You didn’t have to share with anyone
The attention she gave to you
For a while you had her all to yourself
For a while she had you too.
BE thankful for that time
That you had her for yourself
Your sisters never had it all
There was always someone else.
Remember you ‘re the oldest
when responsibilty seems too large
Be glad you are the oldest
Or your sister would be in charge.
Watch out for them and help them
Teach them things you have learned
As they grow up behind you
Giving you the respect you’ve earned.
The girl you let them see
As you all grow up together
Will be the girl they hope to be
Your adoring fans forever.
Be a leader everyday
Setting good examples is a must
As time goes on, you will become
A leader they can trust.
When being oldest makes you crazy
and you want to run away
Think about that college
You will be leaving for someday.
And keep in mind the good stuff
that being oldest brings
Remember you were the first
To do so many things.
When life seem really hard
and you find you want to shout
Keep setting a good example
That’s what being older is about.

  Hej RJ

Nice poem ;0) I have read your poem a couple of times, the flow in the poem is okay, but I think you could make it even better, by removing some of the lines, some of the words and bring forward, what you really had i mind when you wrote it. When I read it, I got lost a couåple of times in all the words you have used.

Fx.

and so on.

I know it is your stile, but I just think it could make it more exiting to read ;0)

Keep writing ;0)
