Career Driven Woman

I look outside the window, the horizon looks bright pink


In the library, the air is tainted with the color of fire


As I watch the students I can't help but admire


Their unwavering focus as they fill blank sheets with ink


And lose track of time



I want to be the best and make a name for myself


Will I relegate other hopes and dreams to the top of my shelf?


"You can have it all", is what I've been told


But that's a lie because I'll keep getting old


And I'll have to make sacrifices



The truth is that everyone has a different path to follow


A career, a husband, kids and a dog


Maybe some of us can have it all


But keep your feet on the ground and don't become hollow


When you realize the hourglass is running out



I made a choice that requires sacrifice


My horizon looks bright pink


But is it dawn or is it dusk?


It doesn't matter, is what I think


I'll just keep doing what I must.
