Stereotypes


Sometimes

When I walk around

The house

I suddenly remember

That I am

An adult

And that I am

Now

The adult sister

that many

Stereotypes

Love to use

That’s not

Awkward

At all...


Like when

I walk

Around the house

Wearing

Incomplete outfits

Just to find

My brothers’ friend

Blushing

Hurrying to turn away

While I

Dash back

Into my room


Or when

They need help

With homework

And finally

Ask for help

Whoever

Was present

Once again was

Astonished

At the clarity

Following my

Explanations


When

They need an adult

There is now

Another option

No longer

Having to wait

For parents

To be present

Just substitute me

And we can get

Through

Nice and easy


I don’t

Feel any older

But there are

Less restrictions

Inhibitions

Limitations

That come along

With this newfound

Freedom and

Responsibility


This temporary

Stereotype

Will only be

But for a few years

As they each

Catch up

And pass the

Coming of age mark

Then we shall

Once again share

The only difference

Of gender, since

We are almost all

Of the same decade
