It is all up to Her

Meditation upon Youth:

They will ask Her:

So, what do you want to do with your life?

Become a lawyer? Scientist? Teacher? Veterinarian? Chef? Librarian? Soldier? Minister?

Perhaps an auto mechanic? Model? Bank teller? CEO? Concert pianist?

Maybe a writer? Waitress? Airline pilot? An actress?

Ever thought about becoming an artist? A doctor? A dancer? A union organizer?

When their chatter ceases, ultimately,

the decision is Hers to make.

All the world is open before Her

like a soft, spring field

in whose soil Her feet have yet to leave a print.
