CB prompt

Multifaceted Family

If you pulled my four sisters
and I aside individually and asked
us to describe our growing up years,
our mom and dad, each other,
our friends and relatives, our house,
our country neighborhood,
the things we did for fun,
how we celebrated birthdays and holidays,
how we spent vacations,
our financial situation,
what we were allowed to do,
what we got in trouble for,
the problems we faced,
how we handled chores,
meal times, school work,
what Dad and Mom taught us,
we’d sound like we came
from five different families.
I’m always surprised
when we get together and reminisce,
and it gets odder as we get older.

Everyone sees things in their own way, I suppose!
