My Castle is Bigger than Yours©

This is what I see…Felina Silver Robinson

For years you watched me

You teased me

Thinking you were better

Even while knowing

We are the same

Raised in the same way

Same place


The same time

For years

I wanted to be you

I wanted to be seen by you

Mostly I wanted to be heard by you

Now I find myself married to a prince

Who adores me

I sit in the window of my castle

Across the water I see you

Sitting in your chair

And I realize


My castle

Is bigger than yours

My prince is grander than yours


My smile is brighter than yours

I’m not here to brag

I’m not here to gloat

I just want to make sure you know

I still consider you my friend

I don’t measure by

What we have or where we live

You are my friend

Because you know my heart

Just like a sister should

I’m sorry that you are now watching me

Wanting to be me

As you sit alone peering out your window
