Great-Grandmother: Evelyn Carlson This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


When I'm 96
I want to be as happy
As joyful
Ascaring
As thoughtful
As nice
As well-liked
As humble as her.
WhenI'm 96,
I want to be as warm
As polite
As considerate
Asunselfish
As generous
As understanding as her,
As gracious
As lovingas her.
When I'm 96,
I want to be all these things,
Because I want to bejust like my
96-year-old
GREAT-grandmother,
Who is all thesethings
And so much more.
