Risk Draft #3

Mother And Child Clip Art

Draft # 3

If she ever thought about him
and she tried not to,
for it reminded her
of the unravelling of her youth,
she supposed the attraction
had been in his daring,
his bold-faced defiance of convention,
an attraction that left faded
with the onset of parenthood
and responsibility beyond self
understanding too late
the only risk taken
had been in choices she’d made.
