I planned my sister's future today:


First, she needs to learn German.

Nevermind that she's never shown an interest in languages


Next, she needs to attend university in Zurich. She'll get a Bachelor's in Engineering,


Our Family will be so Proud, a Useful degree.


No, she'll get a Master's.

No a Ph.D.

Doctor... I Like that.


Next, she'll marry a boy she met in college. He's from China, no India.

He noticed her for her Blonde hair and Big Green eyes

But fell in love with her Brain and Gentle Soul.


They move to India, near his family.

The fledglng Space Program allows her to Shine.

She grows


is homesick

She comes home to the US

Works for Nasa


Is happy



Is planning Her future not scary

And Mine is?



Pallid Bust of Pallus

My first poem ever.

Constructive criticism well received.
