She Is Not Waiting

She is not waiting,

Not for the company of another,

Not for any career,

Not for her stomach to shrink,

Or her hair to grow. 

She is not waiting. 

She is present and content, 

Content in her own company,

Content in her own becoming,

Content in a belly that dances with her,

Content for hair that dries with the wind,

She is not waiting. 

A woman who is not waiting,

She is a dangerous one to mess with,

And an even more dangerous one to become.

How are you growing and becoming the woman you want to be? Are you content with the woman you are?
