Brains - Poem by Justin Reamer

My sister, Elyse,
How she is ever so smart,
She could do anything right,
If you had the might,
That she would never grow tart.
She knew the simplest principles,
Such as one and one equals two,
Then she knew philosophy,
Such as "to thine ownself be true."
She knew the meaning of scientist,
She studied the theory of space,
She knew Galileo's accomplishments,
And perhaps met God's own face.
She understood Darwin's evolutionism,
And Newton's gravitational pull,
She understood Plato's "Forms, "
And why the dirt was so dull.
She understood the definition of unity,
For she knew it was so true,
She probably knew the meaning of life,
To every shade and hue.
She was curious of everything,
Even the books,
She was never precautious,
Even about her own looks.
Elyse, with her brains,
Was better than a Proctor,
She was so educated,
That she became a doctor.
She took care of the sick,
And treated the dying,
She knew the whole truth,
Which she was not lying.
She was good to the world,
As we know it already,
We will only know,
When things are quite steady.
Elyse is a saint,
Unlike any other,
Truth be told,
She was inspired by her mother.
Even when Dad left,
Elyse still held strong,
She knew life wasn't perfect,
And here ‘twas not wrong.
She kept her goals straight,
And her head intact,
She knew as of late,
There was nothing she lacked.
Elyse held strong,
No matter the cost,
She stayed on the path,
And was no longer lost.
