I have not failed, I just found 10,000 ways to not succeed.

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

There lays two brothers and a sister
Descending from unknown parents,
Who all act differently from each other,
All bond with one another purely

The sister is the most unique
She habitats both water and land
She contains beauty within her skin
And shows off her tiny residence
Upon the gentle palms of her hands

Her older brother everyday visits her
He visits very early yet leaves to soon
His body is engulfed with flames
Yet he soothes and warms his sister
From far away, he watches his siblings

Yet the younger brother greets her late
He gets to see her when his brother leaves
He sees no light, his pale skin shows
But his sister believes he’s a gift
Thinks his beauty shines when no light exists

Yet so different, the siblings rejoice
Day after day, night after night
But they shall never touch in a lifetime

This one was inspired by my brother. I recognized that my family has two sons and a sister, where me and my brother would both act angrily (sun) yet we be very dull (moon) and our sister tends to be obsessed with doing stuff to make her pretty (earth). So i used these details to write this poem. To my brother. Enjoy.
