Passive

Often neglected,
you are left 
with nothing 
to do
while your twin 
works alone.

You watch 
you wait
your fingers 
fidget
until extended
a turn.

Yet, 
when I grant
any freedom
to step up
you surrender 
to the struggle 
too soon.

I accept blame
It’s my fault
I didn’t rouse 
your right
to spur a spirit
of discovery
to develop
your separate skills.
