Didn’t I tell you

each time I met the disappointments

and broke into my heart

with a bat of tears

laden with corrupted fears

riddled with anguish and confusion

I was seeking and yearning

for whatever motherly-given right

I was told in my youth

would somehow


be a certainty

in my future life.

Struggling with the changes of this age

the rise of my cohort

watching contemporaries

take their place in history

they leave me

still standing

still searching

and though I stand determined

foresight reveals

a dream far away

and far behind

shaded by the looming shadows

of a pending dystopia.
