Poem: 26

26,

Society says,

“Girl, you gotta settle down,

You gotta find your life-long partner,

Become a parent,

Put on the slippers,

Give up on your dreams.”

 

26,

I say,

“I’ve plenty of time to settle down,

Meet many short-term partners

Before the long-term partner and parenthood,

Put on my ballet flats,

Continue with my dreams.”
