A Sketch of Her Life
A fruit of young love
From the East she was born
On a pleasant January eve.
Her mom was nineteen
and was learning to sing
A lullaby or two to comfort her.
Pop named her Maria Cristina
Inspired by the majestic falls
With exactly the same name.
Pampered and spoiled as a little girl
By grannies, uncles and aunts
Who’d come and play with her.
The name struck as she grew up
It depicts beauty and power too
That upon descent sparks allure.

- Life As A Flight Attendant
A career as a Flight Attendant is very competitive and advancement takes more time. Well, this is because flight attendants mostly remain in their jobs for a longer period of time and simply because they love their job. So, what does it take to becom
To Granny’s eyes she’s chubby cute
And that she can’t resist
When she stretched and yawned.
She dispersed sweet enchantment
So she was told and wins the hearts of all
Right from the day she was born.
Once tiny speck brightly bloomed
Through prisms of light and love
Her loyalist clan surrounded her.
Love indeed filled their home
With smiles and laughters combined
And no harm could come about.
It was a pleasure in its fullest measure
Until she left that childhood scene
Leaving family and friends behind.
Now miles away from home
On a journey to see the world
Beneath the blue magical sky.
The memories of the past
Tattooed in her heart
Cemented in her head.
The shadows of yesterday
Are like transparent waterfalls
Lighter and brighter on the other side.
She believed she could
So, she risked and leaped with grace
She traveled the world.
Oh, someday we'll find it,
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me. ~
