POEMS: “First-Born Son” by Trina Graves

“First-Born Son”

You were the first-born son
Mummy’s precious ‘Little Man’
Adored by all the family
Ever since your life began

You are unique and oh so special
Loved and cherished as much as can be
Even though with Andrews boys
Joey and Tyler makes it up to three

You will always be a big brother
Someone to look up to and respect
Joey and Tyler will often copy you
You’re their Superhero and perfect

Boys love to play rough and tumble
Being active is so much fun
But you have to also be careful
Not to accidentally hurt someone

There is so much you can teach them
They are learning each and every day
They will always want to be like you
Remember this, as together you play

Some days it may seem as though
Your brothers always do come first
Family life can be hectic and busy
You may feel like you could ‘burst’

Just take a deep breath and remember
You are growing up so very fast
Thoughts and feelings can get mixed up
But the bad ones don’t have to last

I wish that you could see yourself
As those of us who love you do
You are Sensitive, Kind and Loving
Thoughtful and Huggable too

    Thank you for sharing another of my family poems Amira. ❤

    Seth is now 14, and his brothers are 6 and 4. What's not mentioned in the poem is that he also has an older sister (16 in a few weeks) and they have always had the most wonderful friendship. It's very rare for them to have a disagreement. Apart from their loving personalities, I think their relationship is so strong because they are home-schooled and have not been limited by peer-pressure to conform.

    1. That is amazing and rare indeed. The common thing often is some kind of sibling rivalry, or competition, and again as you said, it probably stems from the early programming children are exposed to. Home-schooling obviously makes a huge difference for children and their relationships with others. Truly beautiful to hear this Trina! ❤
