Poem of Growing Up #4: In Wait

By  johanna wattimena     5:24 PM    Labels: 
so what's in a man that women search for?
what makes them worthy of her hand
that she would put her heart into loving him,
and her mind into respecting him

now what's in time
that women run back, towards vanity,
the reminiscent of the youthful charm
that they once own

what's in time
that men work, with pain
to reach a goal which will only get higher
as they reach the one before

what's in time
that we can't wait,
or think that we might not get
what we're looking for
if we just wait

i've had enough of imagining what could be and what couldn't be.
i'll just wait.
