Career-Driven Woman

I wish I had the passion

and the motivation at least

to be a career-driven woman.

I mean, you would think

that after 17 years of working

towards the goal of having

a career and good life

would make me feel

successful or even happy

like everyone said it would,

but it doesn’t.

All I feel is frustration.

Frustration from following

the steps and directions

everyone gave me in hopes

that I would have the life

that everyone said I should have.

Now that I have it,

I don’t want it,

and I’m not sure I ever did.

But now I’m stuck with it
