Friend of a Friend

I have always been
A friend of a friend
To my adoptive sister

Her friends she places first
Always dismissing my presence
If I was included, it was out of pity
If she felt so inclined

This has gone on for so many years
She knows just how to treat me
To belittle me in front of all

Even now, our golden years
She has the power to turn
My own boys against me
Making me a friend of a friend
To my own children
Someone that is not thought
twice about
