why did i leave?

Why did I leave?

Because I want to feel
that when I am sixty
when my teeth are no longer
my own
and my hair is yellowing from
age
and not a bad dye job
When I have to eat small portions
When I wear purple with red
When I no longer feel guilty
about eating bread
three times a day
when I use my bus pass
to get into town
when a perm is no longer
a cause for a frown
and I’ve got fifteen
grandchildren
and four great-ones
And my children are
all grown up
and living in sin

that everything I did
was right for me.

I left
because you weren’t meant to be.
