If I had a brother, I wouldn't be playing ping pong alone.

If I had a sister, she would do my hair and help me with boys. 

Only children are twisted romantics. We want our siblings. 

We conjure them out of thin air. 

Adopted is worse.

I am alone and I am forgotten. 

I am not one of them. They say I am but in their hearts they see me a fraud.

Give me my family. Give me my siblings. Give me the parents who made me. 

Give. Me. My. Family.
