Almost Twins


You cried your first cry,
Two months later I followed.
You started crawling,
Seeing you, I started trying.

You started walking,
Slowly, I followed you.
I was always better at talking,
I totally overtook you.

You were a friend I was stuck with,
Even when you stole my toys.
And your stupid biting habit,
I just had to deal with it.
All your dresses were mine,
Mine hardly ever fit you.
We were the mischievous two,
Eager to be grown-ups too.
All the freedom we’d have,
Oh, how we craved that!
Little did we know,
Growing up also meant…

Bhai tikas without you,
Birthdays without you,
Weekends without you,
Priorities screwing us two.
Can we please be kids again?
Screw all this stupid freedom,
And all the crazy responsibilities.
I’d choose you any day!

Let’s build pillow forts once again,
Throw food on people’s head,
Lock a man outside the window,
And beat the crap out of other cousins.

  1. Gorgeous. I think we all wish this. When young we want to grow up and once grown up we wish we were children again……😊

    1. True… As kids we see all the cool things grown-ups do, we never realise their responsibilities, mental pressure and everything else… 😬

      1. Arrey any kind of sibling love😂😂. Be it real or cousin.
        Ask me! I am a single child. I dunno any of these emotions which is so beautifully expressed in your poem😢

      2. Your emotions will never be emptied… But your writings will definitely get better with every word you write. 😬😬😬😬😬

    1. Haha… They could be cousins … I’ll definitely go and read that news… Seems interesting 😍😍 Thank you so much! ❤️❤️❤️

    1. You don’t have to find new words, Eshal. Just the fact that you read makes me feel so so so so happy. Sending you loads and loads of love. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. This is beautiful! Heartfelt and emotional. Friends, like many things in life, come and go, but family is forever. Thank you for sharing such wonderful feelings and sentiments. It is a reminder to us all. Well written, little one! ❤❤❤

    1. Thank you so much, Brad!! Family is something you can’t escape, it’s kinda sweet. As we grow, we don’t get to spend as much time together due to responsibilities … but the bond remains… ❤️❤️❤️❤️🤗🤗🤗😘😘😘😘 Thank you so much, for always encouraging me! 💕💕💕

  3. Shreya 😍😍

  4. Ellie and I are real twins. I know what this post really means. This was such a good post. I really want to become so popular like you! You have 1,606 followers! I only have 2. Ellie, ( my twin ) and a stranger. I would love if you followed me! You totally amaze me with your writing. Any tips for me to? i really want more followers like you. That would be AMAZING! Well, God bless you! 😀 – Hannah ❤️

    1. Thank you so much, dear. What I did was posted regularly… Although, I haven’t been regular these days.

      I had quit my job and had a lot of time, so I posted daily. However, now I’m quiet busy with freelance projects and I’ve not been posting. So, as you can see, my followers are almost stagnant.

      But what’s more important is that you do it cause you love it, not for the followers.

      Have a beautiful day, Hannah! Wish you all the very best.

      Loads of love. Thank you for reaching out.
