They see her.
They overlook me.
Ever feel like people don't see the real you? Yeah. For me, this poem relates the girl that other people see and the person I really am. But I really love how other people can relate this poem to their own situations.

And so this is my entry for #SixWordStories' Self-Portrait Mini-Contest!

this is me and my brother, no matter where i go i feel like i'm following in his foot steps and am constantly referred to as his younger brother, not me even though i have met and in some cases overcome him i still get looked at that way and now where ever i go i have this expectation given to me as his younger sister >.<"

Yeah I know how that is. While I am an only child, I feel like I am constantly being compared to other people, especially my father, because he is a teacher at my school. For me, this poem relates the girl that other people see and the person I really am. But I find it really cool that people have different interpretations of it.

Ah... for me, it's like you're in a family and you're being compared with your sister... it could be many things, though. I really like how you've approached the concept differently and how the title fits in this piece! It's quite clever, actually.

Great effort... quite poignant and profound. :nod:
