I have my grandmother's name,
and my sister's shirt.
My brother's college texts
sit in a cardboard box
until the day
I study the same highlighted words.

I drive my parents' car to school
where the teachers smile fondly at
my family name and
the memories of my siblings
sitting in the same worn desk
I occupy now.

Nice job! I reallt like thet title and how I didn't know how it was going to connect until the end. The tone of the poem was great. At first it sounded like a normal person speaking but then the last line totally flipped the tone and it made it sounded melacholy.
