Manifesto

May 24, 2013 § 2 Comments

On the second day of senior year
she wrote her aims
in a list
on college-ruled paper.

To be good.
To be gracious.
To be kind.

To be brave.
To be brainy.
To be beautiful and bold.

To be all these things,
she was asked,
Is it possible?

I can try all my life,
she responded.

If you can’t?
Perhaps she asked it too.

She added a line.

To be love.
