#LinkYourLife Challenge Day 5: Explore a troubling memory

Oops! I inverted day 5 and 6!

 

He was 40

She was 20

What more can I say?

 

She was pretty

He was hunky

A recipe for disaster.

 

He broke her heart

She wasted him time

All he wanted was a family.

 

But when you’re 20

All you want is to study

And venture up the ladder.

 

He was set, he was determined

And now that she is older

She wonders, what if she’d lingered

 

She would be thirty

He would be fifty

She’d have a baby:

 

They’d have a home

One brilliant career

And one homemaker

Between the two

 

She’d know no better

But now she does

And this is the hardest thing of all
