Valediction of a Chapter In Life

Gone are the days of independence

traded for housework

And new life goals

Of creating a family

And earning success.

 

No more immature debauchery,

Finished with pearls,

Longer hemlines

And modest necklines.

 

I miss the days

Of reckless fun,

But I’ve moved up

And on

And traded it for self love

And you.
