Firstborn

They spend the first fifth of their lives exposing rookie parents

To the uncharted waters of raising adults.

They accept without much discussion the role of

Domestic Prime Minister or House Speaker –

While they’re idolized by younger siblings

And held to higher standards by parents.

When the Lord sent his Son to the world,

It was their role He was given…

Firstborn son, Firstborn among many brethren,

Firstborn of all creation… Firstborn from the dead.

And though a parent’s love runs deep

For every child that graces their home,

The beautiful bond with the firstborn

Will live on for generations to come.
