A Woman of 30...

Confused, unbalanced, scared --

The control is gone -

What is my fare?


Milestone hit -- little achieved.

What to do - where to go... 

Define passion... define relieved...


Alas, these pivotal questions:

To bare? To love?

...explore, grow, reflect? 

Is my truth worth finding -  

when perpetually subjected to patriarchical reject...?


Mortality -- guaranteed.

Time is not... Love is not... 

What else, then, is left in which to believe?


Two roads diverged --

The legacy of a man...

But what did he ultimately find (i wonder) --

At the end of that less traveled land?
