pitted

Pit us against one another,
Tack my image beside hers to distance our souls
Take a red Biro and mark our skin like a squared work book

Do not mention the weight of her spirit
Who would care about something so important?

Pit us against one another,
Money well spent to set the standard
Set it higher, out of our reach, maybe we can reach it in heels.

Convert my love and admiration into perfected hatred of perfection
Isolate me from sisters

Pit us against one another,
Define our goals before we develop,
Point us to the princess pedestal

Together we grow, divided we shrink.
Hollowed by competition.
