The People I Aspire to Be

By: Faith Lowe

I have my mother’s selfless blonde hair
And my father’s intelligent brown eyes
I am told that I look like them
Which I hold with great pride

She tells me I have my father’s brain
And “you’re a younger version of me”
I am a perfect fusion of my parents
They are the people I aspire to be
