What To Be, What Not To Be?
What to be what not to be
Is the big question this season you see
Asked by a hundred concerned family folks,
Every time all of us meet.
The opening line comes from my grandmother;
Says to me, Listen to me,
An MBA degree is all you need!”
It’s a high paying ‘in’ field indeed
My uncle comes up with architecture,
My sister suggest psychology,
Mom then says ‘’Acting is no bad’’
To make things worse, in comes Dad.
IAS, IFS, Veterinary, Dentistry, Engineering,
Law, Pharmacy & strangely even singing;
His list of fields goes on & on & on
He finally begs me to be a MAFIA DON
A cousin then comes to my rescue
Says, ‘’Let her do what she wants to.’’
They all then ask me in one voice,
‘’What is the field of your choice?’’
They get from me a clueless blank stare
Yet in their eyes I can see that they care
So I know; whatever I choose to be
They will always be there for me.
What to be, what not to be;
Still remains unanswered, you see!
