What I was meant to do by Cassie Kinney (poem)

I am sitting in a doctor's office with my brother--
The nurse asks him if he's in any pain, then if he's depressed--
She asks him if he's enrolled at the university--
He says 'yes, I am an art major.'
Then the nurse looks at me with the same question.
I happily say when so many trees need to be planted,
It is my duty instead to restore the health
Including the sustainability of life on Earth.
