Elder Sister (Companion to “Brother”)

By Justin Cha

Brother, you have been uneasy as of late.

……

I am aware of this; you were not meant to be here for so long, and now it takes its toll on you.

……

……

……

……

I am aware of your creed, brother: “You are insignificant. You are not unique. Loved by none, hated by all”. You have blindly accepted this creed since your creation. This creed no longer holds any meaning. You are needed; we cannot lose you.

You are significant to us all.

You are unique in your ways.

You are loved by all.

You are hated by those who wish us harm.

I will not let them harm you.

……

You say, “My words are comforting”.

Can you feel the words, brother?

……

You lack a soul, unlike me. You cannot feel the words. Feel my soul.

Do you feel it?

Come closer.

……

Do you hear it? Does it grant you solace?

……

Are you sad? You are not resisting, yet you are not accepting.

……

“Elder Sister”. That is what you call me. That is what they all call me.

……

You are accepting now. Do you feel the words? Do you feel my soul?

……

You are not sad, yet you are not happy.

……

You are happy? Then why do you hold me like this?

……

I see.

Now, more than ever brother, you are needed. You are wanted.

Always remember, brother:

Sister loves You.
