They say a woman ticks as she ages,

her body begging for child.

I am ticking,

make me a man!

 

Selfish wishes,

she isn't ready.

What about her career?

 

Time diminishes,

risks grow by the day,

what if we can't conceive?

 

I'll wait for her

the girl I love

my wife,

and crave the time

when someone calls me Daddy

and we call ourselves a family.
