Don’t

Don’t go here

don’t go there.

Don’t stay out late

tie up your hair.

Don’t wear that dress

you look too old

and the colors don’t suit you

they’re bright and too bold.

Don’t put your career before your chores

do what we did and don’t want more.

Don’t,

because it makes us yearn

and wonder if we could have lived our dream

and still,

run our home.


Because the older woman is starting to look at the younger woman who has found a balance between her dream career and managing her home. And wonder. And learn.
